Then, youll learn why research is important and why you need to be familiar with particular building types - hospitals, museums, manufacturing facilities, airports, libraries, office buildings, and mixed-use structures - before you even think about designing. And youll take a look at building codes and local zoning ordinances. After a thorough grounding in the physical, youll meet that all-important client and learn how to find out what they really want as you develop a list of goals, problems to be solved, and design requirements. Youll learn how to brainstorm with the client and discover why its important to involve the client in the design process from beginning to end.
