Spatial Interventions (VA4127.01)

Donald Sherefkin & Dana Reitz

For this class, we will be constructing elements to directly interact with the structures and the spaces of the campus, with the intention of creating or revealing new understandings of our built environment. In the process of doing so, we will be exploring our own physical interactions with these shifting locations.

Assignments will require that projects address the physical and spatial qualities of the structure, with an aim towards modifying and transforming our experience of those spaces. Each project will emerge from a very close study and analysis of a site, which will include studies in motion and time.

The studio will begin working with drawings and models to document specific sites. Preliminary explorations with these elements will lead to formal proposals and full-scale constructions placed on the site. Once the spatial interventions have been constructed, experiments with motion and time will continue to alter the perception of them.

Prerequisites: Please submit a statement expressing interest by Friday, May 11. An information session will be offered that day 12:30-1:00 PM in VAPA B206.
