Re-thinking Design Studio Pedagogy: Collaboration Between Architecture and the Allied Disciplines
This research tests the viability of collaborative studios between Architecture (ARC), Building Construction Science (BCS) and Interior Design (ID) students. The studios explored are based on three different collaborative methods. The variables between each studio include number of studio iterations, collaboration time, cohabitation of each collaboration, varying faculty for each iteration, and year-level/experience level of the students.
The data from the studios show similarities despite the many variations in the studios. These studios attempt to help students learn to collaborate and to understand their colleagues in the allied professions. Further research and development of these studios is needed to test these ideas and eventually include other allied professions such as landscape architecture and engineering.
