Abstract

An ongoing effort, begun nearly a decade ago by the building technology faculty, seeks to increase integration of the concepts and content taught within the technical courses into design studio work. This has primarily been implemented through lab assignments in the technical courses devised to apply developing technical knowledge to current, or recently-completed design studio projects. This approach has met with considerable success in the later years of the architectural education, after students have acquired a strong foundation of technical knowledge. There is greater difficulty, however, in fluently integrating building technology content in early studios, particularly given a greater fluidity in early design studio content, and a lack of technical knowledge among beginning students.
