Foundation Design B-2 Studio


B-2 Studio develops an understanding of conceptual, spatial and constructed relationships through a study of tectonics. Tectonic relationships are translated into concepts expressed spatially and materially at varied scales. Students will also study site by analyzing two different contexts to address the overt and veiled conditions. In this studio, students are expected to employ the critical thinking and 'making' skills learned previously. In addition, students will cultivate generative ideas from the studio discourse and translate them into complete architectural proposals. The first night of class will include an important discussion of course goals and rules; therefore, attendance is mandatory. Registered students who are absent from the first night of class will lose their place in the studio and will have to look for replacement courses during the add/drop period. A.1. Communication Skills; A. 2. Design Thinking Skills; A. 3. Visual Communication Skills; A.4. Technical Documentation; A.5. Investigative Skills; A. 6. Fundamental Design Skills; A. 8. Ordering Systems Skills; A.11. Applied Research
