The Practice

Every design project in academia is a fresh beginning?- a new tutor, a new site, a new program. In the profession, design practices formulate ideologies that affect all projects. This studio is an attempt to simulate architectural practice in academics. We formulated an ideology based on multiple readings, analysis of multiple offices, and in class discussions in the first 4 weeks of the studio. Two concurrent design projects were introduced in the next stage-? a 12 week self initiated project that had the potential to manifest students ideology, a 4 week group project assigned by the tutor, designed to test students response to an unanticipated project.

The studio culminated in a website highlighting the vision, projects and structure of students architectural practice.
