Building Design Studio 1 is the culmination of student experience in the Bachelor of Building Design course. It provides students with the opportunity to apply and integrate their knowledge and skills gained from earlier years and to develop strategies for their transition to professional life. Students will design low-rise buildings (one to three storeys high). Students will develop their understanding of the fundamentals of the project briefing and design process through a design-based project. Students will take responsibility for the design, planning, organisation, implementation and evaluation of the various components required for successful completion of the project. Wherever possible, projects will be sourced from industry partners. Projects may be undertaken by individual students or in small teams. Building Design Project 1 focuses on the scoping, designing and planning of the project. Project proposals will be presented as a written report, portfolio, physical model, poster and oral presentation.
