Demonstrate critical thinking through a self-reflective process of conceptualization and design thinking that is open to consideration of alternative perspectives by analyzing, evaluating, and synthesizing ideas and information gathered through applied research grounded in information literacy.
Implement complex two and three-dimensional graphic representation techniques using a wide variety of traditional and digital media, to reflect on and explain the architectural design process to a wide range of stakeholders.
The knowledge and ability to apply a design decision-making process through appropriate technical documentation in a manner that is client-centered, sustainable, aesthetic, cost effective, and socially responsible.
Incorporate a wide range of technical skills and professional architectural knowledge during schematic design to demonstrate a comprehensive application of life safety, accessibility, and sustainability issues in making sound design decisions across varying scales and levels of complexity.
Demonstrate the ability to synthesize a wide range of variables into an integrated design solution by employing appropriate building materials, building systems, and construction practices grounded in environmental stewardship and based on sound research and design decisions across varying scales of systems and levels of complexity.
Understanding how to collaboratively lead teams of stakeholders in the process of conceiving, developing and implementing solutions to problems in the built and natural environments, utilizing knowledge of the diverse forms and the dimensions of professional practice along with associated ethical, legal, financial and social responsibilities.
Apply math, physics, logic as reasoning skills to investigate problems related to force resolution in structural systems, thermal heat gain and loss in buildings, material quantity estimates, budget management, and life-cycle cost analysis.
Demonstrate information literacy through applied research by raising clear and precise questions, using abstract ideas to clarify and express information, and considering diverse points of view, to reach well-reasoned conclusions and evaluate options against relevant design criteria, building standards, and program requirements.
