Architecture II

ARST 436
Spring 2016
Section: 01  
Certificates: Civic Engagement
Course Cluster: Service-Learning

This course is a second level architecture studio whose focus will be a single intensive research and design project. The studio will focus on the architecture of the college campus dormitory, analyzing the historical variations of this building typology, exploring its potential currently, and putting forward design proposals grounded in precedent studies and research. A central goal of the studio will be to explore potential roles of the dormitory as a space for student life in the context of the residential college campus. As the semester progresses, additional design, representation, and production tools will be introduced and used for developing work for the project, from graphics software to the laser cutter.
