Construction analysis

Subjects

Construction Analysis is a Level 2 undergraduate subject of the Bachelor of Design, University of Melbourne, and a core subject for the students who aim to complete a major in Architecture.

The subject is structured around a main assignment: “The Flipbook Section”. Normally, plan views and cross-sections are employed by architects to describe a building at the end of its production line, or ‘as-built’. The flipbook-section assignment subdivides this process into 12 stages in order to give emphasis to the logics of construction.

Subject coordinators: Alberto Pugnale (2015-present), Alberto Pugnale and Giorgio Marfella (2014), Alberto Pugnale and Paolo Tombesi (2012-2013).
