The main concern and focus of this course are the "Creativity and Functionality" through a notion of a Problem-Solving design process. The design process will be approached as a method of finding solutions for small scale functional, environmental, and structural problems. The student will address various issues such as functional relations, circulation patterns, qualitative and quantitative study of architectural spaces, relationships between spaces and required openings, the effect of openings upon facades, human/ environmental/ functional relations, simple structures for small scale buildings, and similar issues. The course projects may be a Celebrity Residence, a Vacation House, an Exploration Center, a Kindergarten, Kids' Arts Center, Children's Library/Museum and similar projects.
