    This course is a requirement core course for first year architecture and interior design students. The course is a foundation design course, through which students experiment and explore the basic principle rules of composition and relationships between the architectural space constituents and the factors affecting, shaping the architectural space definition and experience.

    This remedial course is aimed at revising and developing basic mathematics skills for architecture students to equip them in understanding structural concepts, complex forms and geometry. This module will cover the fundamental concepts of mathematics that are applicable to architecture and engineering concepts, including: algebra, trigonometry, integration, geometric vectors in three dimensions, matrices, lines and planes, analytic geometry and differential calculus. This course is a pre-requisite to Arch 205 – Statics and Mechanics of Materials.
    The studio addresses the contemporary urge of urban insertions and adopting a theoretical and methodological approach as response to the social, cultural, economic and technological forces and implications on the urban form.
    The studio engages issues of structure, circulation organization, materiality and tectonics of the design set within a large scale urban context where the exploration of the urban fabric from its historical, morphological and typological dimensions, form the catalyst behind the type and the program of the architectural intervention.
    This course - requirement course for second year architecture and interior design students - is the second in the series of history of architecture, preceded by ARCH 307 World History of Architecture I.
    The objective of this course is to provide a broad overview of the discipline of architecture: its history, theories, methodologies; its manners of thinking and working rather than a chronological survey, the course will be organized thematically, with examples drawn from a range of historical periods as well as contemporary practice. Through lectures, readings, and discussions every student will acquire a working knowledge of key texts, buildings and architectural concepts.
    The ambition is to develop thinking strategies that will help young architects make design decisions and better appreciate the richness of the material world as well as to understand the political and social implications of every architectural production.
    This course seeks to develop students’ understanding of building structures and selection criteria for appropriate systems; in addition to integration of structures with architectural objectives; conceptual design of structures for gravity and lateral wind and seismic loads. This course covers the selection of specific applications for the design of structural systems in conjunction with architectural design projects, or as applicable to a real life situation. Comparisons between theoretical design and code compliance, as well as the selection of one structural system (Concrete/ACI, Steel/AISC, or other) for detailed design, are covered.
    The course is a continuation and intensification of Statics and Mechanics of Materials course (ARCH 205). The course introduces students to the tools used to analyze structures. The overarching goal of the course is to advance the understanding of structural behavior and to enhance the ability to apply structural analysis methods to structural systems. It tackles the fundamentals of structural analysis including types of loads, the internal loadings in structural elements and deflection of structures. Students will conduct also various structural design experiments related to the topics that they have learned during lectures. This course is a pre-requisite to Arch 306 – Building Structures and Seismic Design.
    Building on the skills acquired in sketching and technical drawing, this course shall develop the fundamentals of architectural communication depicted through the abstract and system thinking, spatial training, abstract visualization, and visual training. Accordingly, the course is expected to explore the two-way stream between conceptual/abstract and systemic thinking on one hand and abstract representation on the other. More specifically and upon the successful completion of this course, students will be able to exploit the different characteristics of the medium in use, analyze architecture design and represent graphically its essential characteristics, masterfully apply the principles of graphic composition, and understand and apply the principles governing the relationship between conceptual thinking and abstract representation. Building curiosity (hunger for knowledge) and perusal of questions through applied research form the backbone of the course.

    This course constitutes a rigorous program that focuses on enhancing the application of the four skills of reading, listening, speaking, and writing.  This course is designed to help learners develop and more so intensively apply the basic skills they will need later on in their studies.  Learners will read and understand a variety of texts, write well-structured and coherent compare-contrast, cause-effect, and argumentative paragraphs with minimal grammatical, mechanical, and lexical errors as they progress towards writing well-organized academic essays, and comfortably use basic listening and speaking skills in their discussions and presentations.  As this is more of a communicative skills enhancing course, learners will be extensively indulged in experimenting with and experiencing the English language.

    A major focus of this course is to help learners develop the language and communicative skills needed to express the main functions used in academic discourse.  In this course, learners read, discuss, and analyze intermediate course texts, enrich their vocabulary, practice definitions, and clearly discuss both orally and in accurate and well-organized academic paragraphs similarities, point out differences, and state causes and effects of different topics.

    Moreover, this course helps learners develop their confidence and effectiveness in using spoken English in a range of academic situations as well as develop their academic listening skills.  Particular effort is put to help learners improve their pronunciation of English as they are provided with ample opportunities to listen to authentic speeches and recordings and then analyze them in terms of their phonological features (individual sounds and stress patterns) and also to practice speaking using the language studied.

    Using self and peer-editing, learners will also find this course extremely helpful in developing their writing skills as they are required to deal with error analysis and substantial grammatical and mechanical topics.

    In this course, particular care is given to support beginner learners in building up a strong foundation of basic language and learning skills.  Learners will be introduced to the basic structures of the English language and will be given continuous support to develop the minimum required in the four skills of listening, reading, speaking, and writing.  At the end of this level, learners will be able to listen to, read, analyze, and understand simple beginner to lower-intermediate level texts, have simple conversations about basic matters, and to write short narrative and descriptive paragraphs with minimal grammatical and mechanical errors.

    It focuses on strengthening individual learners’ foundations for the use of the four communicative skills.  This course is designed to help learners further develop and apply the basic skills they will need to build on in order to progress in their English language acquisition.  Using extensive lower-intermediate to intermediate level reading material, learners will be guided in their effort to analyze, discover, and explain as many language lessons as possible as they progress in their abilities to communicate in English.  Learners will also experiment with a variety of listening material, simple descriptive and process paragraph writing and editing, and speaking opportunities.  In this course again, learners will be given ample time and chances to get comfortable in their efforts to familiarize themselves with the English language.
