Design Studio 1: Place

The study of architectural design is introduced through a series of short studies regarding PLACE that provide opportunities to develop basic design skills, including free-hand drawing, site analysis, and modelling. The theme of place is explored at a variety of scales, beginning with the geology of Sudbury, its foundation as a rail town, and its mining history, as sources for design exercises. Emphasis is on the recording and analysis of existing places to establish a base understanding of our location in Sudbury and the region. Exercises may include studying the light, situating buildings on the rock, and thinking in section. One section of the studio is instructed in French.
