ARCH 192 is the first in a series of design studios intended to develop design and representation skills, architectural literacy, and critical thought. Assignments are organized around a sequence of four design problems. Each project focuses on a set of tasks that simultaneously develop conceptual, technical, and analytical skills, while introducing various approaches to design methodology, specifically two- and three-dimensional composition, transformational operations, analytical/comparative studies, and the exploration of the relationship between architectural space and its site and use.
