Integrated Design 1College of Architecture
This course provides lecture, lab, and studio components focused on the integrated relationship between architecture and the landscape. The course views the landscape as a primary source of information for the making of architectural decisions about space, access, natural and built forms, and environmental soundness. The course teaches fundamental design principles, ordering systems, site analysis, graphic research methods, architectural and landscape precedents, and graphic documentation skills. The course builds on the skills addressed in the freshman studio courses, and prepares students to understand concepts of interior space and materials to be considered in ID2 and ID3. The studio component emphasizes integrated architectural composition; the lab emphasizes exploration and experimentation with design media and other specific design inquiries in support of the studio.
