Chabot CollegeCourse Outline for Architecture 8B, Page 2Fall 2010Course Outline for Architecture 8BFUNDAMENTALS OF ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN IICatalog Description:8B - Fundamentals of Architectural Design II 4 unitsContinuation of the content and issues introduced in Architecture 8A. Emphasis on generating and developing design concepts, incorporating structure, materials, and energy considerations as determinates of form. Emphasis on applied traditional and digital graphic communications tools, including scale models to convey intended concepts and meanings. Prerequisite: Architecture 8A (completed with a grade of “C” or higher). 3 hours lecture, 3 hours studio.[Typical contact hours: lecture 52.5, studio 52.5]Prerequisite Skills: Before entering the course, the student should be able to:1. apply fundamental principles and means of design in the creation of two- and three-dimensional compositions;2. consciously plan and systematically approach the solution of a design problem and reflect onits success and effect on the product;3. identify and evaluate alternate solutions to given architectural problems;4. deliberately compose design elements which exhibit a specified set of relationships (i.e. pattern, hierarchy, and contrast) and organizational attributes (i.e. proximity, repetition, sequence, structure, symmetry, etc.);5. express proposed design concepts graphically, with study models, and verbally;6. access research materials on the built environment;7. describe how social and cultural values affect architectural design;8. manipulate and apply digital images, illustrations and 3-dimensional models to the process ofarchitectural design.Expected Outcomes for Students:Upon completion of the course the student should be able to:1. define in words and diagrams the central concept or part of a design;2. use both traditional and digital graphic and model building techniques to study design strategies;3.apply the role of human activity as determinant of and constraining element in design decisions;4. use functional objectives and constraints to affect the form and organization of architectural elements;5. manipulate architectural elements (floors, walls, roofs, openings) to define form and space that support the communication of intended meanings and concepts;6. adapt architectural design in response to a variety of site factors, including climatic, daylighting, and acoustic conditions;7. describe how cultural values and beliefs inform the perception and meaning of built environments;8.devise architectural designs in response to the cultural and anthropometric needs of occupants;9.apply knowledge of structural potential and limitations as a design factor.Course Content (lecture):1.

Considering environmental design factors: climate, daylighting, and acoustics10. Incorporating structural concepts into design11. Presentation techniques using traditional and digital media12. Traditional and digital model-making as a study-toolCourse Content (studio):1. Apply theory and principles of spatial definition to design2. Analyze architecture design3. Apply anthropometrics, proxemics, and cultural attitudes and perceptions as determinants of form4. Apply privacy gradients and attributes of form in support of design5. Apply environmental design factors to design6. Apply structural concept to designMethods of Presentation:1. Lectures 2. Slide and overhead presentations 3. Field trips 4. Studio design projects 5. Building analysisAssignments and Methods of Evaluating Student Progress:1. Typical Assignments a. Design an artist-in-residence studio in response to a published artist; project requires model, traditional and digital drawings, and written documentationb. Write analyze the traditional domestic architecture of a specific culturec. Design a ‘Mingles’ row-house with instructor-provided program and site; project requires model, traditional and digital drawings, and written documentationd. Design a house with instructor-provided program and site; project requires model, traditional and digital drawings, and written documentation2. Methods of Evaluating Student Progressa.
