DAB301 Architectural Design 5: Commercial

The unit will aid you to develop architectural designs of intermediate complexity with focus on the integration of issues pertinent to commercial architectural projects that address modern technology, society and culture. This design unit expects you to start undertaking your own, independent research and project development, aiming for a real-world design environment. It builds upon design skills developed in previous units focusing on commercial architecture of industrial and mixed-use projects. Particular emphasis is placed on effective and professional communication of the design intent with the aid of digital tools. Design theory, sustainability, sociology, heritage and adaptive re-use, history and critique, as they all apply to architectural design, all form part of the content.
