AENG 352 Architectural Design Studio II Portfolio Dr. Magda Mostafa & Dr. Mohamed Noaman

Fall 2011


Course Description Studio on form, space and composition. Students are required to think of architecture from the “outside-in� approach, with focus being placed on the form of architecture and its composition. An emphasis will be placed on the compositional aspects of spatial design- proportion, balance, rhythm, dynamics etc. and their use as tools of functional accommodation. Three-dimensional models play an important role in design development and students will be encouraged to think spatially rather than in the conventional Cartesian format. Issues of meaning, message and symbolism will be discussed and applied. Various works of architects adopting this formalistic approach will be reviewed and analyzed.
