Experiments in spatial structure
ARCH 5500-001 Course Listing
Relationships between new modes of representation and spatial structure are interestingly complex. This seminar-workshop will allow participants to explore the possibilities of generative software to initiate new spatial relationships as well as its capacities to enable spatial form that has been imagined yet not made manifest in any effective manner.
Selected readings and discussion will initiate a series of short sequential projects. These will begin with transformational operations on respected precedent that open up unexplored possible futures under the agency of new processes of spatial generation. This will lead to the experimental generation of spatial structures based on relational strategies typically outside of architecture.
Work is expected to be highly experimental and yet rigorous. Risk is essential. We will be working within the Rhino/Grasshopper environment so a working knowledge of these programs will be important.
