It will take a project from existing conditions to final construction drawings based on a specific concept, performance requirement and scope of work. The course will approach the work as a real-world design studio, simulating the dynamics, structure and requirements of a professional office. Students will apply their knowledge of data collection and research, design development, digital representation and construction drawing production. As a capstone course, it assumes the successful completion of all prerequisite courses and proficiency in design, technical aspects of construction, professional practice and digital representation. If you are not comfortable with any of your skill sets, please make time early in the semester for review. Goal The goal of the course is to learn how to develop a design and produce construction drawings for that design, as done in a professional design office. Learning Objectives (LO) The learning objectives of this course are: 1. Learn how to plan and manage time to meet deadlines. 2. Learn to collect and analyze site data using interviews, personal mapping, site
