ARCH 2030 - Architectural Design 3
Credit Hours: 3.00
Prerequisites: ARCH 1010 and DRCG 1140; or consent of the program advisor
(formerly DRAD 2030)
This course builds on the phases of the design process and construction and focuses on a larger scale commercial project with added integrated systems within environmental design, building code and program requirements, interior space relationships and circulation, study of materials selected for interior and exterior application, and introduction to the various building systems. Students will present hand sketch design solutions and create a BIM model to build upon throughout the phases of design and construction to complete a set of architectural drawings of their design solutions.
Location: South Campus
When Offered: Fall semester only
Contact Hours: 6
Billable Contact Hours: 6
