Issues of structuring, servicing and constructing spaces are introduced. Projects involve the use of a brief, analysis of requirements, design problem solving methods, synthesis of design resolutions and communication of design solutions. The primary concern in this unit is to overcome the project constraints in order to integrate the range of requirements and issues, and achieve a holistic design that addresses human needs.
