The McGill School of Architecture's professional M.Arch. program involves a thesis project that challenges students to contribute to the broader discourse of achitectral ideas. The thesis must investigate theoretical premises through a specific program and site, and should explore ideas for the creation of buildings that surpass the mere resolution of programmatic requirements. It must, however, result in a buildable architectural project. Design Research and Methodology provides an opportunity for students to prepare for their thesis project studio.
DRM Winter 2003 is supervised by: Anna Mainella, Jean D'Aragon and Robert Mellin; assisted by Ricardo Vera.
