Course Architectural design VII enables students to understand the principles of designing buildings with complex disposition and to train them into the design process of sports buildings, as a type of buildings for sports and recreation. Through world well-known examples, students will observe the principles and methods of designing, as well as the need of different dispositions and types, standards and similar. Based on the location needs and site analyses students will be able to understand their future communication requirements with all key stakeholders considering legislation, regulations, infrastructure, environment, security, public building challenges, sport facilities needs and requirements, complex communication system, complex installation systems etc. The final result of the course is an individual student work.

COURSE OBJECTIVE
Introducing the students to methods of integration of basic architectural elements into complex architectural structures,
Develop the student capability to design multifunctional buildings, designated for special group of users from conceptual to final project,
Enable students to develop refine professional design proposals towards a comprehensive and considered architectural proposition
Provide students with ongoing opportunities to reach innovative design solutions by hypothesizing, experimenting, and learning from both good and bad examples,
Support students skills for application of theoretical knowledge of sociology, basic design and architectural constructions;
Enable students for understanding the role of exploration, dialogue and diagramming in design process;
Developing verbal communicating skills;
