The final year of the M.Arch Program is centred on an individual design proposition by each student. Following Design Research Studio 1, Design Research Studio 2 focuses on complex individual design projects. Since the design Thesis is the culmination of a professional program in architecture, design projects should include a proposition about a building, or a series of buildings within a community setting. During this process, written research and design research are encouraged to reinforce each other rather than to be viewed in a linear sequence. ARCH 5326 further complements and supports the design Thesis. PREREQ: ARCH 5306, ARCH 5086 ARCH 5555 (design studio inst, leC), cr 9 (Design Stream).
