Information regarding Master of Architecture Studio A (Semester 1) and Studio B (Semester 2).
Studio A: A Meal, an Obstacle Course, The Space Between Neighbours
Marijke Davey, Nicole Allen, Laura Martires
Studio A, offered as ABPL90284, is an introduction to architectural process in Three Acts; the studio will focus on imparting methods of discipline, rigour, experimentation, seeing, spatial translation, conceptual flexibility, and responding to constraints.
The Three Acts [projects] each investigate a set of constraints, techniques and concepts. The studio will introduce some of the myriad ways of designing and representing architecture. As the scale shifts, the emphasis and focus of each scene reveals itself.
Studio B: Discipline
This studio, offered as ABPL90285, is concerned with investigating the rules, codes, conventions, and techniques that define and support the practice of architecture.
Leveraging the multiple meanings of the word discipline, Studio B will encourage students to work with rigour, repetition, and refinement, as we search for an understanding of the field of knowledge within which we operate. We will be disciplined in our pursuit of the discipline.
Through careful (drawn) analysis of selected precedent works, and the development of a structured design project, students
will engage directly with the potential of architectural representation, in so doing coming to terms with the nuanced and dense language of our discipline.
In broad terms we will argue that creative, meaningful, and thoughtful practice can be achieved by engaging directly with the specificity of our field.
This is a studio about the discipline of architecture.
