Course Objectives To improve students' understanding of architectural programming and space planning processes in architectural design.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • will become knowledgeable in the techniques of architectural programming.
  • will be able to develop a critical approach on architectural programming and visioning.
  • will learn about the relation between programming and space planning.
  • will develop skills in space planning for a variety of building types
  • will recognize the importance in producing representations that communicate intentions concerning architectural programming and space planning.
Course Description This course introduces two key topics concerning the practice of architectural design, namely architectural programming and space planning. The building programming defines a collaborative process –occurring relatively earlier in visioning processes- where a set of descriptions that define a future facility is gathered and organized within an architectural program. Space planning, on the other hand, refers to a skill that is employed during design development phases. This particular practice involves a form of translation of architectural program and vision into floor layout. This course provides a content where students develop skills for both architectural programming and space planning.
