In Architectural Design III, students will be introduced to the dynamic relationship between buildings, streets, and public open spaces, which can create a functional, attractive and sustainable built environment.

It is an interactive course that accentuates evidence-based design and research. Students will complete design proposals and schemes to redevelop an urban site in the city of Riyadh; involving different factors: economic, social, and environmental. The emphasis will be placed on fitting architectural forms into historical, and cultural contexts; enabling desirable activity patterns; conceptualizing built form; providing necessary infrastructure and service systems.
