About this course:
The Advanced Design Studio is a rehearsal for the rigors of the Capstone Project. The student explores a big idea and creates a program responding to a site (site chosen by instructor). Using the design process and site analysis, the student refines a program, selects goals and objectives, and prepares a design solution and documentation booklet. This course is a required prerequisite to the Capstone Proposal and Capstone Project.
