Before attending Morrisville State, I knew very little about the architecture industry; but what I did know - it was my dream. The skills I acquired at MSC helped me on my journey to achieve my vision of becoming an architect.
Architectural Studies and Design A.S.
Course DescriptionArchitectural Design II
This course, second in a series of four courses, is the sequential course to Architectural Design I. The principles of three dimensional design explored in Architectural Design I, will be applied to problems and analyses dealing with order and definition through the creation and manifestation of spatial volumes. In working through these problems, students are expected to develop and demonstrate a design logic that accounts for composition, precedent and context. Students will also study the relationship of natural light and architectural volume - space. Anthropomorphism will be probed and constructed in response to the words of Vitruvius: firmness, commodity and delight. Ultimately the studio will conclude with a comprehensive final project. Prerequisite: ARCH 141 Pre- or Corequisite: MATH 102 (minimum) or permission of instructor 4 credits* (2 lecture hours, 4 laboratory hours,) spring semester This course satisfies the Liberal Arts and Sciences requirement and the SUNY General Education Requirement for the Arts
