ARCH 404 Architecture Design Studio IV This studio course concentrates on the issues raised by creating new architecture in existing urban con- texts with complex social and cultural characters. Emphasis is placed on developing the ability to create well-developed and artistically meaningful solutions to moderately complex architectural problems. In addi- tion to performing in-depth analysis of the urban site and the functional program, students prepare formal building-type analyses as a way of understanding the tradition of building in the city. Lecture topics include urban context; social, cultural and behavioral issues; and analytical methods. Prerequisite(s): ARCH 303, ARCH 341, ARCH 361.


ARCH 405 Architecture Design Studio V This studio course addresses moderately complex architectural problems in large nonurban and natural sites. Projects include a variety of building types, complex functional programs and structural systems. In addition to performing in-depth analysis of the natural site and functional needs, students develop building programs as a way of understanding the relation- ship between analysis, synthesis and communication throughout the design process. Lecture topics include methods for site and program analysis, design meth- ods and processes, global environmental issues, and sustainable architecture. Prerequisite(s): ARCH 404.


ARCH 406 Architecture Design Studio VI This studio course emphasizes holistic and integral architectural design. This course is a reinforcement of the conceptualization process introduced in earlier studios and the integration of knowledge gained in other major courses. The studio requires students to advance their architectural design skills to include the highest achievable level of detail. Students are expected to develop the ability to make theoretical and technical judgments with confidence and produce highly sophisticated design solutions. Lecture topics include materiality, details and connections, building systems integration, and simulation and representa- tion. Prerequisite(s): ARCH 341, ARCH 352, ARCH 405, ARCH 461.


ARCH 414 Parametric and Generative Design Strategies for the Building Arts In this course, students explore parametric and gen- erative modeling through associative geometry using advanced applications in building design. The course focuses on simulating behavioral and formal responses to design constraints, limits and rules as a framework for understanding their implications as applied to building form. These responses range from concep- tual form-finding strategies to structure and envelope systems. Prerequisite(s): ELDS 225.


ARCH 421 Advanced Architectural Presentation In this studio course, students explore traditional and contemporary methods of advanced graphic presen- tations as means of communication in architectural design. Prerequisite(s): ARCH 101, DRAW 115.


ARCH 428 Architectural Craft and Tectonics This course develops an understanding of the relation- ship of architecture to the sticks and stones of which it is made. The logic of construction is sought by analyz- ing the creation of architectural form. Exercises explore the design and fabrication of architectural elements, connections and entire structures. Prerequisite(s): ARCH 341, ARCH 404.


ARCH 435 Site Plan Design and Development The basis of this course is to provide site develop- ment and design from the conception of a project through to the final site stage. The course begins with site selection and progresses through sediment and


erosion control requirements, building location, parking and ADA requirements, storm runoff, and landscape requirements. Prerequisite(s): ARCH 352, ARCH 461.


ARCH 436 Applied Structures This course introduces students to a variety of struc- tural systems and gives them the tools to help them select appropriate systems for their designs. Students learn how to approximate structural member sizes and gain a broad understanding of material behavior to prepare them to make structural design decisions. Prerequisite(s): ARCH 341, ARCH 352.


ARCH 438 Urban Issues Seminar The seminar investigates the city as a specific power that affects people, materials and the relationships between the two. Use, form and social values of the city are analyzed to decipher relationships between morphology and the logic of change. Because classical urban studies involve accurate transpositions of the city by means of either physical or socio-economic descriptions, both physical and socio-economic fac- tors are integrated into the course. Prerequisite(s): ARCH 101.


ARCH 452 Structures III In this course, students develop an ability to solve complex structural problems and make informed selections from structural system alternatives. Struc- tural problems involve steel and reinforced concrete systems in large, complex and/or multi-story buildings. Special emphasis is given to the design of structures to withstand lateral forces. Prerequisite(s): ARCH 341, ARCH 352.


ARCH 454 Architecture Seminar This seminar provides architecture students with an opportunity to investigate and understand new and emerging issues in the field of architecture. Such issues may include new research in computer-aided design, architectural materials, assemblies and/or technolo- gies, sustainability, design method and integrated prac- tice. In addition to actively participating in the seminar, all students are required to conduct an in-depth inves- tigation of one emerging issue. Attendance at related professional conferences is strongly recommended. Prerequisite(s): Permission of the professor.


ARCH 461 Environmental Control II This course is complementary to ARCH 361 and focuses on the visual and acoustical aspects of the built environment and on other building service sys- tems. The course covers illumination and lighting systems, day lighting, lighting design, electricity and electrical systems, architectural acoustics and building noise control, water supply and waste systems, and fire protection and fire alarm systems. Prerequisite(s): PHYS 201.


ARCH 465 Sustainable Design This course provides an overview of critical develop- ments in sustainable building design strategies by examining environmental problems and possible solutions through design. Readings, lectures, guest speaker presentations and class discussion introduce students to the need for and possibilities of becoming effective green builders and architects. Prerequisite(s): ARCH 461.


ARCH 471 Architectural Practice This course presents a study of professionalism and ethics as they relate to design professionals. A detailed analysis of professional practice includes office and corporate structure, administration, public and client relations, consultant and contractor relations, project administration and procedures, and compensation. Prerequisite(s): ARCH 341.


ARCH 480 Master Builder This course presents an option for students who want to design and build from their own ideas of architec- ture. The course starts as a three-week design project of their choosing, with direction from the professor with regard to scope and feasibility of construc- tion. During this first phase, the students design and produce detailed drawings of a concept piece of architecture that they later build together. For the


remaining seven weeks, the students engage in materi- als selection and acquisition and construction of their design. The team of students is led by the professor in an educational process of sequential building con- struction that moves systematically through the logical proceedings of building. Prerequisite(s): ARCH 303, ARCH 341, ARCH 352.


ARCH 490 Portfolio Preparation and Presentation This course focuses on the development and produc- tion of a portfolio containing material from the initial professional contact to presentation of the original portfolio. The letterhead and mailing package, business card and résumé are discussed, as are ways to make the portfolio economically feasible and reproducible for mailing and tips on personally presenting the portfolio. A series of exercises explores the available media and design possibilities of packaging, graphic documentation of a student’s project and similar top- ics. Prerequisite(s): ARCH 303.


ARCH 495 Special Topics in Architecture The topic of this course varies from quarter to quarter. Each seminar focuses on various issues in the field of architecture and offers the student an opportunity to pursue individual projects related to the subject of the course. Prerequisite(s): Vary according to topic.
