"The Architecture Foundation Studio sequence is a series of three courses intended to introduce students to the principles and processes of architectural design. All courses in the AFS sequence address the elements of architecture and their contextual relationships as well as design tools, techniques, and processes. The first course in the sequence, Architectural Foundation Studio 1 (AFS-1), concentrates on the introduction of architectural elements and their relationships. The studio will develop architectural intentions using formal strategies at multiple scales. Varied digital and analogue techniques of visualization and representation will be explored. The primary purpose of studio will be to introduce students to the principles that operate within architectural design."
