The Architectures of Interdisciplinarity Design Studio seeks a holistic synthesis of technological investigation and design, using projective and case-based learning to research the socio-technological implications of design strategies.

Emphasis is placed on developing methodologies for testing projected proposals and for evaluating the relative value of quantitative and qualitative modelling.

The first semester of the studio will give an understanding of contemporary design tools and their architectural potential. Short design workshops exploring architectural concepts will be paralleled by technical training and research of current studio theme. 5th year students will in addition to the given semester brief consider individual interests in preparation for their diploma thesis.
