Study and experiment of architectural design process
Our contribution to the educational profile
Design a project to experiment and be innovative by performing an installation including the integration of human, technical and economic constraints of the design project.
Develop a reflexive attitude enriching the theories and practices of architecture: master and integrate the technical and human sciences dealing with the process of architectural design, manufacture, and transmit a design expertise, problematize a research question around the process.
Build as an architect ethical and responsible practice: consider architecture as a cultural discipline constantly renewed, in constant touch with developments of artistic and social practices.
Interact with all the actors involved in the issues of space and architecture: Foster experimentation and creativity; communicate in a clear and structured way for experienced or not public, the architectural design process tracking and its spatial production.

Objectives of the course and acquired specific learning *
This selection aims to highlight the elements of the design process, to become aware of multiple implications on his architectural production. This one enlarges the approach of the architectural program and thus the student’s’ creative potential, firstly by developing his observation knowledge and cognitive abilities, and secondly, by approaching the experimental research focused on the study of the design process.
Observe, analyze and assess the design process;
Assess the potential of a material and a design element;
Understanding the stakes of the architectural design process;
Use several manufacturing techniques, such as digital design (CAD, 3-D printing, laser cutting);
Design an installation;
Present in English a design process and its production orally and in writing (poster, book).
Lectures, articles, interactive pedagogy with student participation.
