This is an advanced architectural design studio that will investigate the notion of narrative and journey in designed spaces at the urban scale, building scale, and smaller scale such as exhibitions and sculpture. Students will be asked to analyze one or more precedents in terms of narrative and journey by developing methods of notation and mapping to present their analysis. The second half of the semester will be dedicated to a studio design project in which students can apply lessons learned from the precedent study to design an exhibition to be mounted in conjunction with the publication of a historical non-fiction narrative. In designing the exhibition for a specific display space, we will consider materials, embodied energy, assembly/disassembly, and the adaptability of the design to other exhibition spaces. These issues will be considered through the lens of sustainability. Pre-requisite: at least one intro design studio.
