Course Description

In the first semester, the student had taken in the course (Architectural Design I) the fundamentals (function, form, and materials) and techniques of design that sharpen his/her talent through objective projects. This semester is the continuity of that course. The student will go deeply in the Architectural design methods and techniques, and also will learn more about the basic rules of design which is: Function, Esthetics, Materials and construction technologies.

Course Objectives

This course aims at studying the architectural design principles and methodologies. Students apply these principles in the studio, which based at

  1. The freehand drawing exercises that relate to studio projects to help students develop basic drawing skills and a familiarity with two-dimensional design concepts
  2. To give students tools that enable them to understand and manage the functional aspects of the design projects
  3. To give the students aspects related to vertical and horizontal circulation
  4. To observe the three basic components of any architectural project: function, form, and technology.
  5. Ranking the design stages starting with the concept, reaching the end of the details.
  6. Applying analytic techniques and problem-solving methodologies.
Intended learning Outcomes and Competences

Students apply these principles in the studio. Upon completion of this course the student should be able to:

  1. To be able to communicate effectively with others, using drawings and sketches.
  2. Knowledge of designing buildings with high quality of form and functional performance.
  3. Identify, formulates, and solves architectural engineering problems.
  4. Effectively use basic architectural and environmental principles in design.
  5. Deal with and follow local and international standards in architecture.
  6. Respond to site characteristics such as topography, vegetation, and watershed in the development of a project design.
