Subject area group: Building and Surveying

Module code: BSV09105
Module title: Architectural Technology 3
Examples of equivalent learning:Architectural Design to a level equivalent to SCQF level 9.

Description of module content:

The module has two parts:

Design Project 80%
Students are required to develop a design project to meet the client's brief, showing all the required architectural drawings.

Technical Report 20%
The project will require students to critically appraise the design brief, reflect on their findings and develop their technical response to the design programme. It will require students to prepare individual technical design solutions including technical details, calculations and comparisons with building regulation standards. A technical report must justify the design and technical decisions made by students to demonstrate compliance with the client brief and building regulatory requirements.

Learning Outcomes for module:

On completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1: analyse the function, activity and identify the key design issues;
LO2: analyse the structure, construction and services installation and present the findings;
LO3: develop a design portfolio solution(s) for a specific urban location;
LO4: provide a rationale for the design approach taken and justify the building solution adopted;
LO5: justify the form of the development within its particular location and within the context of the site;
LO6: synthesise and evaluate technical detail design solutions and justify your response.

Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LO's:
The module is taught as a design studio that includes presentations, group discussions, demonstrations and both group and individual tutorials.
Technical Report 1
The technical report is a directed problem based learning experience where student groups are required to research and analyse a building type that relates to the leisure activity being addressed. They must present their findings in the form of a technical report and present them to their peer group as part of the formative assessment process. (LO's 1 & 2)
Design Project
This requires the students to reflect on their research findings in order to develop a design brief for their building. Formative feedback is given to the students on an individual basis weekly as their designs develop and individual tasks are agreed on a weekly basis. (LO 3 & 4)
Detail Design Project
This requires the students to use problem solving techniques to design detailed technical solutions that are appropriate for their building designs. Formative feedback is given on a weekly basis as their designs develop and individual tasks are agreed on a weekly basis. (LO 5)
Technical Report 2
Students are required to reflect on their solutions and justify the decisions that they have made (LO 6)

Embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills:
The following employability skills are embedded and assessed:
Group Work - students work in groups to undertake a precedent study on a work process and to present their findings to their peer group.
Communication - students are required to present their findings graphically, digitally and orally.
Media - students are required to use appropriate media for the presentation of their design solutions
Technical Report - students are required to reflect on their design and technical solutions and evaluate their effectiveness.
