In the graduate thesis studio, students must demonstrate the application of theoretical research and critical positioning, plus the ability to integrate site, program and other design issues of architecture including space, time, aesthetics, context, inhabitation, and systems in
a self-initiated architectural design project that arises
from and makes a critical contribution to the student’s
chosen focus. The finished thesis project must demonstrate an advanced degree of critical thinking, technical skill, and knowledge of the craft of building through a rigorous and highly resolved level of work.
