Description of module content:

The module has two parts: a group precedent study and a design project for a work place.
Precedent Study
Students are required to work in small groups to examine and analyse the work process that is undertaken in a particular building and to reflect on how the building has been designed to accommodate that process. This task is personalised by allowing the students to choose the building to be studied.
Design Project
The design project will require students to critically appraise the design brief, reflect on their findings and develop their own individual response to the design programme. It will require students to prepare individual design solutions including technical design solutions for their designs and to justify their designs within the site context.

Learning Outcomes for module:

On completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1: analyse the work activity undertaken in a place of work;
LO2: critically reflect on the process undertaken in the place of work and present research findings;
LO3: interpret the requirements and provide a rationale for brief development;
LO4: provide a rational for the design approach taken and justify the building solution in its context;
LO5: utilise a problem solving approach to create technical detail design solutions;
LO6: develop and present a portfolio.
