Ideas and Approaches in Design presents an introductory survey of the concepts and issues involved in the architectural design process. The course material presents actual projects and theoretical propositions from architectural history as exemplar responses and/or alternatives to the distinct challenges entailed in designing an architectural project. Moreover, the historic examples and ideas are presented as illustrative of the broader ideas associated with particular design movements or trends. By presenting the design process as a broad historical and intellectual endeavor; and as more than a mechanical exercise, Ideas and Approaches in Design seeks to impart the designer with a basic knowledge of and understanding of architectural history and theory; a basic knowledge of and understanding of architectural terminology; and basic understanding of and appreciation of the architectural design process.
