ARCH 491 Architectural Design VII-Thesis (6)
It is the goal of this program that, upon completion of the fifth year, each student will have the ability to pursue an architectural idea in a rigorous, in-depth manner and be able to express the knowledge of and implication of that idea through the completion and presentation of a "thoroughly considered building design project." It is the intent of the fifth-year component of the Bachelor of Architecture program to foster the spirit of in-depth design inquiry and research, and to build upon and reiterate design awareness, skills, and methods introduced in previous years; and to introduce, discover and develop new ones. To these ends the primary educational vehicle is the use of a propositional thesis as a way of directing the study toward the linking of theory and building in a meaningful manner.
