Rêve Architecture Ltd follows the 7 stages of Architectural Services as provided by the New Zealand Institute of Architects. This is a simple linear approach starting at the pre-design and concept services and concluding at the completion of the built product with the contract administration services. While we advocate being involved through-out all stages of a project, we are not adverse to being approached to provide concept design or limited service options. For more information please refer to the NZIA Guide to Architects’ Services .
An architectural thesis is the culmination of a student’s research. Submission of the thesis represents the completion of the final requirement for the degree and may be presented as graphic representations, a written work, or physical forms. According to Architectural Research Methods  by Linda N. Groat and David Wang, the scope of the research inquiry must not be too broad or too narrow. A good topic will clearly and simply identify a body of literature to which the topical question can be referred. Additionally, a thesis question must have significance to not only the student, but his or her peers, and to the field of architecture.
All applicants who speak English as a second language, including US citizens, must submit results from either TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or IELTS (International English Language Testing System). Since proficiency in English is a prerequisite for acceptance, applicants must attain an acceptable score on either test; RISD requires a minimum result of 93 on the TOEFL or on IELTS. The language test requirement may be waived for applicants who are enrolled in an institution where English is the language of instruction.
