ARCH-602 Design 2: Interiorities & Contexts
2:00 pm – 5:50 pm
Higgins Hall North, 501
This design studio addresses a specific site through its interior. It emphasizes the related conceptual and material impacts of this “inside out” approach. Circulation and its material and spatial qualities are explored through the design of a small building that responds to a detailed ensemble of architectural programs and the multiple contexts of a local institution. The studio has worked with a variety of community-based organizations for the purposes of knowledge exchange, allowing students to intimately understand the activities housed in their design proposals. Coordinated in parallel with Architectural Mediums II and Structures II, contemporary structural and representational techniques are explored within the studio introducing students to basic ideas of integration and comprehensive design.
