Architectural Design 5

The course aims to give focus at “Environmental Design” principles. Students will experience how these principles guide and control the design process. The emphasis will be on the different manipulations of architectural and urban design that help to reduce energy consumption of both internal and urban spaces. The course projects may be such as: Research Center, Technical School, Museum, Echo Tourism, and other similar ones.

Course outcomes:

a. Knowledge and Understanding:

1- Identify principles of design of multi-functional architectural projects in accordance with relevant technical disciplines.
2- Outline principles of preparation and presentation of complex design projects in a variety of contexts and scales.
3- Identify different architectural functions and circulation patterns.
4- Identify appropriate forms and structure systems for different architectural functions.
5- Identify different site boundaries and all environmental contexts (natural, man-made and human)

b. Intellectual Skills:

1- Integrate relationships of structure systems, construction elements and building materials into design process
2- Breakdown multipurpose complex design projects into manageable inter-relatable partial components
3- Compare different design objectives and sort them in terms of priorities in the design process.
4- Analyze circulation patterns in accordance with architectural projects’ elements.
5- Analyze site and environmental contexts and features.
6- Relate three-dimensional design with images of real sites and places

c. Professional and Practical Skills:

1- Compose architectural design programs for multifunctional projects
2- Convert complex projects’ programs into appropriate architectural forms using proper structure systems.
3- Apply site analysis findings to proper design with respect of all environmental contexts (natural, man-made and human) in a positive contribution to them
4- Produce and present architectural design projects using an appropriate range of media and design-based software.
5- Review and criticize similar and existing projects.

d. General and Transferable Skills:

1- Develop team work co-operative skills
2- Communicate effectively
3- Manage tasks and resources within constrained time
