Arch Foundation Studio 2College of Architecture
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 second course in the sequence, Architectural Foundation Studio 2 (AFS-2), brings greater emphasis to meaning and process in architectural design. The studio will use principles developed in the previous studio to develop an understanding of the various priorities in the organization of architectural form through the application of method. Formal and phenomenological elements are examined alongside cultural and social issues of meaning. The primary purpose of studio will be to develop student knowledge of processes and sequences of design focused on decision-making.
