Course Aim

After completing this course students will:

• Have an understanding of current research and development in the area of their project;
• Have developed or designed projects, products or processes that respect societies objectives for economically, socially and ecologically sustainable development;
• Have completed a qualifying project which should contain elements of building construction and/ or urban design;
• Having assessed the possibilities and limitations of their solution to the problem and reflected on this limitation in the presentation of their work;
• Holistically, critically, independently and creatively identified, formulated and managed issues in order to solve the assignment;
• Evaluated the ethical and health & safety implications (as if the project is realized);
• Independently (with guidance of teachers) completed any investigation or development work;
• Have presented their findings to the group, both in writing and verbally.

Architecture with a focus on building construction and/ or urban design. Literature searches, seminars, sketch and design tasks, the use of CAD and computer tools for the preparation, presentation and documentation of projects.

This course applies the knowledge students have acquired in previous basic level courses. Application is through participation in the planning and implementation of an advanced investigation or development project. The work is performed in part individually and partly in groups. Tutorials takes place in groups and individually. External tutors and lecturers with professional experience may apply. Submissions shall be of a high grade, supported by reference literature and references. The work should be delivered in a way so that it is clear to a person who is not familiar with the project and is only receiving the results of the work. The course is an architecture and design based course. Students are expected to make presentations in the form of drawings with high-quality figures and models (both digitally and physically). Students will need to reflect on the end result of their project.


The course includes literature seminars and workshops on methodology for project implementation. Group and individual evaluation is undertaken by the course examiner. For final grading, participation in and attendance of seminars, tutorials, workshops, presentations of the project work and participation in the written report (in the form of a joint course record of the set theme) is required.
