Main focus of the course is the forming of a building from artistic, technical and to society related aspects. Major attention is paid to the design of a small or medium sized building with an in advance established programme. Relations to townscape / landscape are focused as well as construction, energy efficiency and long range sustainable aspects on the building level. The teaching treats actual competence within the field, potential future developments and the role of architecture within this context. Instructions are given concerning the practical application of knowledge in the architectural design and the relation to the site. Teaching is based on exercises executed individually and in groups, through seminars, lectures, visits and tutorial reviews.

Examination details

Grading scale: UG - (U,G) - (Fail, Pass)
Assessment: Approved assignment tasks, approved examination project and at least 80% attendance at seminars, lectures and group presentations. The qualities of the project assignment and presentation are evaluated and discussed by an examination team comprised of the course examiner, lecturers and external critics after which the examiner decides if the project is considered to fulfil the requirements for a pass. In the case of a non-pass the student has the right to a new examination opportunity after any necessary amendments or re-formulation of the project. The examiner informs the student as to what is required in order to achieve a pass.

The examiner, in consultation with Disability Support Services, may deviate from the regular form of examination in order to provide a permanently disabled student with a form of examination equivalent to that of a student without a disability.
