About this course:This studio course addresses issues related to space planning in commercial design. Students generate design concepts for complex multilevel project requirements. The handling of circulation and spatial adjacencies and individual offices and workstations receive prime consideration. The design presentation combines 3D model-making with a range of line drawing representations (interior perspectives, plans, sections, material, and furnishing boards). The process of creating a design concept is stressed throughout the course through assignments, slide presentations, lectures, and studio desk critiques. Space planning strategies, issues of social and environmental sustainability, and code requirements (including exiting and handicap accessibility) also form an important part of the process.
