Description: The first in a sequence of four studios that foregrounds the relationship between form and program. By underscoring this pairing, the studio suggests that program and form amplify one another (rather than one superseding the other). The studio establishes a foundation in visual culture through examples in architecture and other design disciplines, art, and art history, as well as exercises in visual/spatial discrimination. The studio stresses the importance of iteration throughout the semester: individual projects emphasize a production/critique/refinement cycle, as does the overall sequence of projects that make up the entire studio.
