About this unit

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.
