Studio in Spatial and Sustainable Design

2nd Semester Design Studio

Course Con­tent By means of a small and man­age­able exer­cise, the stu­dent will pre­pare a design project. The top­i­cal focus varies from year to year. The pro­gram is struc­tured into 4 phas­es, each char­ac­ter­ized by the com­ple­tion and sub­mis­sion of small­er exer­cis­es, and is intend­ed to guide the stu­dent from the ini­tial idea, on through to the mate­r­i­al sam­pling and sub­mis­sion of a con­cept, and sub­se­quent­ly to a final project real­ized in con­struc­tion mate­ri­als (wood, steel, con­crete, glass, clay, ). Each tuto­r­i­al group will dis­cuss meth­ods of design and pre­sen­ta­tion, modes of work­ing, incor­po­ra­tion and imple­men­ta­tion of mate­ri­als and col­ors, use of nat­ur­al and arti­fi­cial light­ing, and also the con­struc­tive means for real­iz­ing a design. The course s goal is to incor­po­rate these top­ics of dis­cus­sion into the stu­dent s work. Stu­dents will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to review their thoughts on the design with tutors on an indi­vid­ual basis. Stu­dents are expect­ed and required to active­ly take part in gen­er­al dis­cus­sions. Par­tic­u­lar empha­sis will be placed on spa­tial think­ing and design, also on the use of work­ing mod­els in design development.
