Arch 102 explores architecture in relation to the theme of embodiment. The course emphasizes that architecture mediates a direct physical and psychological encounter between the human body and the world. The topic is explored through exercises that marry the tacit and explicit knowledge of materiality, space, structure, and surface. Students focus on aspects of architectural making through processes of forming, shaping, cutting, carving, and casting. The architectural section becomes a critical tool for discovering and interpreting layers of embodied information, and for studying qualities of poche and interstitial space.
