An online, undergraduate unit provided by Curtin University and Open Universities Australia, Architectural and Spatial Grammar Studio incorporates Work Integrated Learning (WIL) through design activity, research and workshopping to explore the role of spatial grammar and local mannerism in architectural science.
You will participate in active projects with a focus on developing an understanding of how architectural space can be described and occupied. You'll do this by applying knowledge of spatial typologies and relationships of building sites and people to the design of a series of studies of small dwellings, and a collective space, in generic and suburban settings.
On completion of this unit you will have developed the skills to investigate and identify spatial typologies, which you will demonstrate by creating and interpreting a series of projects that communicate your acquired knowledge. You will also learn how to analyse simple buildings and sites in terms of precedents, context and people.

In this Architectural and Spatial Grammar Studio unit, the topics you will study include:
Architectural and Spatial Grammar Studio offers students a solid foundation in spatial grammar, local mannerism and architectural project work. A strong working knowledge of these areas is essential to the pursuit and further study of architectural science. You will gain first-hand experience of portfolio and project work, and have the chance to interact with members of the industry and community.
You can also utilise the skills you develop in this unit to take advantage of opportunities outside the direct architectural space. Graduates have found success in areas as diverse as environmental research, conservation and community development, project management and teaching.
If you are an Australian citizen, you may be eligible to receive a government HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP loan, meaning you can defer payment of your fees.
This course can be paid for through the HECS-HELP government loan scheme. If you are an Australian citizen or hold a permanent humanitarian visa, this means you don’t need to pay upfront.
Instead, the Australian government will pay your course fees on your behalf. You’ll begin repaying your loan through the tax system once you start earning more than the minimum threshold of $54,869 (2016-17 income year).Find out more about government study loans here.
