Architectural Investigations: Models - ARCH9106

Year - 2020

This elective will explore the relationship between a range of representational strategies and embedded content in a selection of significant 20th century architectural works. Via a series of meticulous analytical models we will interrogate these works to develop precise yet productive close readings. Our tools will be detailed analysis, accurate measurement and conceptually ambitious re-modelling. Within a search for inventive, literate, contributions, a rigorous yet experimental attitude to architectural thought and its rich disciplined development in weekly classes will be encouraged.

3 hr seminars/week

Seminar presentation (30%), Final studio project presentation (30%), Illustrated report (40%)
