“We shape our buildings: thereafter they shape us.” - Sir Winston Churchill
Coursework this semester will focus on the evaluation, development, and synthesis of architectural form. We will explore the ideas, techniques, and challenges related to creating form in architecture. We will then use this information in a series of projects that focus on the creation of a design solution based on a particular formal strategy. Elements of form such as the wall, the grid, and the cube will be applied to solve specific design problems that address issues in the world around us on both a local and global scale.
