ARCH 729 Real Estate Financing and Development This lecture course introduces the facilitation of private development for the city through finance, real estate, historic certification and equity structuring, through legal structuring, debt financing, and property man- agement. Public/private partnerships and cooperative development tools involving grants and funding are explored. Prerequisite(s): URBA 715.


ARCH 730 Architecture Design Management Design management—the consideration and alloca- tion of resources through design—is a critical skill for architects in today’s construction industry. Examina- tion of the building design process, construction process, design management principles and case studies are employed to develop and apply design management skills.


ARCH 735 Site Plan Design and Development The basis of this course is to provide site development 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 ero- sion control requirements, building location, parking and ADA requirements and storm runoff, to landscape requirements.


ARCH 736 Applied Structures This course leads students into an in-depth study of a variety of structural systems and gives them 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.


ARCH 743 Algorithmic Form The course provides a survey of algorithmic tech- niques that generate structures of specific interest to architects. The structures include, but are not limited to, those derived from the use of recursion (fractal


curves), surface (2-D Sierpinski carpet) and spatial (3-D Menger sponge) subdivision, mappings of time based phenomena to 3-D geometry and the applica- tion of shape grammars, such as L-systems. The Maya Embedded Language and Python are the principle scripting environments in which students explore and evaluate the architectural merits of a variety of algo- rithmic methods. Prerequisite(s): ANIM 709 or ELDS 750 or ITGM 721 or VSFX 708 or permission of the chair.


ARCH 753 Structures III In this course, students are expected to solve complex structural problems and make informed selections from structural system alternatives. Structural prob- lems involve steel and reinforced concrete systems in large, complex and/or multistory buildings. Special emphasis is given to designing structures to withstand lateral forces.


ARCH 754 Architecture Seminar This seminar provides graduate 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 technologies, sustainabil- ity, design method and urban design. In addition to actively participating in the seminar, all students are required to conduct an in-depth investigation of one emerging issue. Attendance at related professional conferences is strongly recommended.


ARCH 755 Structures IV The basis of this class is to structurally design a build- ing starting from the concept phase and completing with structural design drawings. The course begins with site layout and analysis and continues with use and occupancy requirements to final structural design including foundations, floor, roof, walls and lateral brac- ing. Prerequisite(s): ARCH 753.


ARCH 760 Sustainable Design This course provides an overview of critical develop- ments in sustainable building design strategies by examining environmental problems and possible solu- tions through design. Readings, lectures, guest speaker presentations and class discussion introduce students to the need for and possibilities of being effective green builders and architects.


ARCH 765 Emerging Urban Issues This seminar examines pressing contemporary tech- nological, cultural, theoretical and economically driven issues relevant to urban design and development. Emerging issues for the 21st century include the socio- logical impact and infrastructure needs attendant to vast ethnic migrations, the rapid growth and sprawl of mega cities, and the creation of new cities.


ARCH 770 Graduate Architecture Portfolio This course focuses on the development and produc- tion of an economically feasible and reproducible portfolio and supports graduate digital portfolio construction.


ARCH 771 Architectural Practices This course presents a study of professionalism and ethics as they relate to design professionals. A detailed analysis of professional practices includes office and corporate structure, administration, public and client relations, consultant and contractor relations, project administration and procedures, and compensation.


ARCH 772 Master Builder Beginning with a guided design project, students collaboratively design a building considering cost analysis and feasibility of construction, while produc- ing detailed architectural drawings that are used to build the project. After concluding the design phase, students work on selection and acquisition of materi- als, prefabrication of building components and the final construction of their design. Prerequisite(s): By permission of the department chair.


ARCH 775 Global Architectural Practice Specialized knowledge and skills such as the ability to work effectively within cultural, political, economic and professional constraints are necessary for success in


today’s world of global projects. This course addresses these skills as well as development of cultural sensitivi- ties essential to the collaborative nature of global and intercultural design.
