Art in Architecture 2 (BDES2024)


Drawing upon skills and knowledge learnt in Art Workshop 1, students will extend their ability to work with complex ideas while drawing on interdisciplinary practices. A diverse range of studios will host the productions and critical discussions of the work in conjunction with a series of lectures and independent research to be attained outside the workshops. By treating art as a field of open-ended experimentation, with direct consequences for architecture, this course encourages architecture students to undertake a self-directed and research based approach that widens their own practice through working across the multiple streams of information specific to contemporary art.
