All architectural propositions begin as images that postulate new worlds. Some projects begin from a point of view that is expressly experimental. This studio will explore the history of visionary architecture as expressed through texts and images, ranging from Piranesi and Raymond Roussel, to Lebbeus Woods and Italo Calvino. Students will develop a series of projects that will explore the limits of architecture through drawings and models.
In addition, weekly readings and sketch problems will be assigned. Please note that this course may require additional materials to be purchased by the student.
