ARCH 3282: Undergraduate Architecture Studio II

Undergraduate Architecture Studio II


Kristen Paulsen
Adjunct Assistant Professor

Course description
Studio II explores program and its potential as a generator of architecture, challenging students to think creatively and unconventionally about program. Work for this studio includes careful program and site research, rigorous analysis and the production of artifacts both descriptive and speculative. Mapping, diagramming, and architectural drawing/modeling (and their hybrids) serve as tools for delving beyond the surface of things. Students are asked to consider program as event and narrative, employing both written and visual means to inform design strategies.
