The main concern and focus of this course will be about the "Problem Solving" design process. The design process will be approached as a method of finding solutions for functional, environmental, and structural needs and problems. This will be as important as the need for generating creative and innovative ideas as the creative thinking methods should be well rooted in the prerequisite "Architectural Design (1)" course. The student will address various issues such as functional relations, circulation patterns, qualitative and quantitative study of architectural spaces, relationships between spaces and required openings, the effect of openings upon facades, human / environmental / functional relations, simple structures for small scale buildings, and similar issues. The course projects may be such as: a Celebrity Residence, Chalet, Youth Hostel, an Exploration Center, a Kindergarten, Kids' Arts Center, Children's' Library/Museum and similar projects.
