B Arch, 2nd Year Spring, 2014
Multiple / Futures

The spring semester builds on the proficiencies and sensitivities developed in the fall semester to advance strategies for the design of urban dwellings. The studio reframes the investigative and exploratory work of precedent analysis to speculate on the future of dwellings in the city of Chicago. The semester begins with a focus on the spatial and functional specificities of the areas of ‘privacy’ and ‘community’ in dwellings. This leads to the primary project of the semester designing a multi-unit urban dwelling with comprehensive articulation of the physical and cultural context, program, architectonic language, and material assemblies. The project unfolds in a series of connected and cumulative phases: CONTEXT + CONTENT, INHABITATION + FORM, TECTONICS + SPACE, CONSTRUCTION + ASSEMBLY. The aim is to connect deep study of the internal and external in a choreographed system of spatial components and physical assemblies. Students are challenged to think critically about context and site, patterns of living and inhabitation, tectonics and composition, material and assembly.
