The Architecture major teaches students to apply design thinking, a creative, solution-focused approach, to imagine future environments for living, working and playing in our age of environmental change, rapid urbanisation, global flows of people, materials and capital and exponentially increasing digital capabilities. Design lies at the heart of the architectural process and is underpinned by an expertise in technologies for representing imagined environments in 2D and 3 D (analogue and digital), an understanding of technologies of building (structural and material systems, building science and environmental systems), and a knowledge of precedents from history (architectural, landscape and urban). Consequently, the major is hinged around a spine of design studios which are supported by a sequence of subjects that teach skills in representation, technologies, and histories of design.
