Course Structure

With a specialist course at Monash you begin study in your area of interest from day one. If you have a specific career goal or more specific field of study firmly in your sights, this may be the option for you. These courses are designed to ensure you have the right combination of skills needed for your professional field.

The course develops through theme studies in Architectural design, Technologies and environments, History and theory, and Communication. These will come together in the form of a graduand exhibition normally developed during the final two studio units in the third year of the course.

A. Architecture design studios

Architecture design studio units bring together a range of complex issues inherent in the production of architecture: material, structure, program, site, history and representation. They focus on the architectural project as a process of investigation, critical observation and experimentation. Design studios foreground the development of architectural designs through material and three-dimensional testing of ideas. They combine various designs, technical, conceptual, historical and professional issues into creative architectural outcomes across a range of scales and types of projects.

B. Technologies and environments studies

Technologies and environments units cover material, structural, construction and environmental conditions. Studies begin with the exploration of materials through physical models and drawings. They move on to the introduction of structural systems and then to environmental systems including human comfort and energy usage. Studies culminate with a comprehensive integration of building systems and the introduction of relevant professional practices. Across the units, issues are explored through design projects including the use of physical and digital models for performance analysis.

C. History and theory studies

History and theory units provide the skills to research and analyse architecture issues, and develop awareness and critical understanding of architectural and urban developments across local, national and international contexts. Through the prism of history, you will begin to situate the built environment in relation to broad social, cultural, environmental and theoretical developments. These units introduce the languages of architecture – formal, visual, written, and verbal – and enable you to become more articulate in all of these modes.

D. Communication studies

In Communications units you will learn various representational techniques relevant to the technical, conceptual and intuitive practices of architectural design work. The investigations develop through a series of clearly defined exercises that build upon one another and increase in complexity and scale over time, from drawing to key software applications and design media necessary for professional practice. You will be introduced to tools, techniques and media for developing and expressing architectural ideas.

E. Occupational health and safety study

This will introduce you to occupational health, safety and environmental training particularly within the context of studying art, design and architecture.

F. Free elective study

Electives will enable you to further develop your knowledge of architectural design, or to select units from across the faculty or the University (in which you are eligible to enrol).
