Architecture I – Elements (ARC2101.01)

Donald Sherefkin

Introduction to the discipline of architectural exploration. Architecture I focuses on the formation of architectural concepts through the development of spatial investigations using scale models and drawings.

We begin with a series of abstract exercises which explore ways in which meaning is embedded in form, space and movement. These exercises gradually build into more complex architectural programs organized around particular problems.

In the second half of the term, small architectural projects will be developed on a campus site, culminating in a final presentation of measured drawings and a scale model.
