Current and proposed architectural studio coursework taught by the author has been looking into the integration of input from allied disciplines in the education of architecture students that is an interdisciplinary approach - a collection of disciplines with a shared commitment to solving an architectural design problem. In implementing this philosophy, proposed syllabi have been revisited with stronger references to materials investigation and structural design integration, as well as by promoting collaboration and consultancies with educators and professionals in the related disciplines of landscape architecture and the integration of public art, architectural visualization, urban design and land planning and development. The aim again here has been to integrate approaches from other disciplines, allowing for a holistic approach to problem solving. The benefits for the architecture students include the valuable experience of interacting with and borrowing from the other design-related disciplines and promoting cross-fertilization of innovative and entrepreneurial ideas by broadening their outlook for the propagation and conceptualization of design research questions. Consequently, both faculty and students remain pertinent and aware of advances in related disciplines while integrating them in collaborative studio work.
