FND236 Studio II Formal Tectonics

[3–6, 6 cr.]

This studio will introduce basic architectural concepts, exploring the relationship between spatial constructs and human scale, through critical investigations of small-scale, single-function projects. The studio will foster the exploration of the relationship between Structure, Form and Space through specific projects that mediate between the conceptual and the functional dimensions. The projects should lead to well-articulated constructs demonstrating innovative spatial explorations, realized through a set of models and drawings. This studio will emphasize manually constructed models and hand-drafted drawings, as a means to engage design-thinking through making.

Prerequisites: FND231 Studio I-A, FND232 Studio I-B, and FND235 Shop Techniques
