Description:
SYLLABUSES FOR THE DEGREE OF
MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE
Notes: Candidates on satisfactory completion of the MArch degree may apply to read for the MUD
or MLA degree under a dual degree programme. Those interested in registering for the dual degree programmes shall consult the Head of Department well in advance for advice on their
selection of courses in order to take account of the requirements and provisions as set out in
the MUD and MLA degree regulations and syllabuses.
For the purpose of these syllabuses, the teaching of each course will be conducted within one semester.
FIRST YEAR: CORE COURSES
ARCH4001 & ARCH4002. Architecture and urban design I and II (15 units each)
These two courses aim to use the case-method to give candidates experience in problem-solving and
decision-making. Projects will call for design integration of the many factors which shape our
environment including legal-financial determinants and social conditions. Emphasis will be on
complex buildings, and group work in urban design in Hong Kong and in the region. Sketch designs are
required with emphasis on imagination, ideas and graphic communication. Field trips will be required
for the course.
ARCH4003. Professional practice I (3 units)
The course covers the area of building, planning and contract law. Land ownership; lease conditions;
landlord and tenant covenants; easements; rights of way; torts; Hong Kong town planning ordinances and procedures. Building ordinance, regulations and other related laws; codes of practice; submission
of plans to various authorities. Buildings Ordinance Office's practice notes for Authorized Persons.
Formation and discharge of contracts; enforcement; breach and remedies, arbitration; types of contract; standard private and public building contract forms; subcontracts; nominated subcontractors and suppliers; relevant statute and case law and other professional practice issues of HKIA and ARB.
42
ARCH4005. Building structures and systems (3 units)
The course is designed to close the gap between structural theory and design. The subject is divided
into two parts. The first part highlights the more important aspects of the structural planning process from the architects' point of view. The second, analytical part, develops the candidates' skills through case studies of actual projects leading to a deeper understanding of the complexities of the structural
problem. Topics such as building failures, structural alteration and additions, building regulations,
geotechnics, foundations on difficult grounds and computer-aided structural design/analysis will be discussed.
The course provides an understanding of the realities of designing and manufacturing components of buildings within aesthetic, economic and time frameworks. Design construction communication is studied through production and technical drawings, manufacturer's shop drawings with special emphasis on the use of materials and manufacturing technology. Direct studies of manufacturing
techniques both traditional and new are undertaken by field trips to factories and construction sites.
Construction systems including the systems approach, tandardized buildings, contractual strategies and their impact on the evolution of building production are investigated.
Field trips to construction sites and design offices form an integral part of the course.
ARCH4006 Urban design principles (3 units)
This course is an introduction to the subject area of urban design, within the broader field of architecture.
Topics covered include: city forms in history, urban design concepts and approaches, contemporary urban design issues, techniques and evaluation criteria for urban design inquiry, city building trends in Hong Kong, China and the region.
SECOND YEAR: CORE COURSES
ARCH5001 & ARCH5002. Architecture and urban design III and IV (15 units each)
These two final year courses conclude the curriculum by means of a design thesis where a report and a special study are also required. Candidates choosing to do a design thesis are required to demonstrate a mature understanding of their chosen topics during an oral examination. The requirements for dissertation are those normally required in a Master's programme; an oral examination is also required.
The course is supplemented by sketch designs the purpose of which is the same as those in the previous year.
Field trips will be required for the course.
ARCH5003. Professional practice II (3 units)
Code of ethics and professional conduct; architects registration ordinance; architect/client/
consultant/contractor relationship; project management; tendering procedures; bills of quantities (specifications); scheduling techniques; measurement conventions; organization and management and
other professional practice issues of HKIA and ARB. Analysis of relevant cases in architectural
