Course Content (Syllabus)
The first-year students are introduced to the fundamental principles of building design either by lectures on the principles of construction and building materials, or by studio courses in which students will develop their design skills on a small scale proposal of a flat-roofed single-storey residence. The goal of this course is to introduce students to the constructional and material aspect of their architectural proposals. The objective of this course is to clarify the relationship between design and construction. The comprehension of this relationship and the development of an architectural proposal, which takes this relationship into consideration, will allow them as professional architects to be creative and competent in a market that requires balance between innovative architectural proposals (both in design and in materiality) and building integrity. In this course, students cultivate the ability to communicate (with the proper use of design conventions) through design representations (the construction detail scale is 1:5), and through lectures; In these lectures students understand the fundamental principles of small scale conventional building construction and learn the properties and types of the basic building materials, so that they can make the appropriate choices for a complete architectural proposal. This course is the basis for following courses ("Architectural Design 1 "03EA10" and other), studying thoroughly the relationship between architectural proposal and construction. Students are examined either in written examinations or in oral ones by presenting their projects.
