1B Design Studio

Teaching Assistant(s)

During the 1A studio in the fall students develop key skills in spatial thinking and associated practices of its representation in both two and three dimensions. In this second design studio, students  continue the development of architectural design foundations, albeit in increasingly more complex contexts.

Within this studio, architecture is treated as a practice-based discipline engaged by way of a variety of activities, or operations. For us, we understand these activities as constituting the drivers of architectural production and can include a variety of undertakings including but not limited to: spatial and geometric experiments, site analysis and mapping, material and tectonic explorations, and program- and user-based analysis. During the term we will foreground different sets of operations and explore their distinctive capacity to generate architectural ideas and drive their associated production.
