Design Studio #4 addresses the synthesis of architecture
and landscape. It engages a set of villas by 15C Italian architect Andrea Palladio as
precedent as well as site for intervention. These iconic buildings’ sites, composition and
spatial orders will be analyzed and reformulated to develop strategies for landscapes and
buildings as relational figure‐field compositions. Students will design a collection of
buildings and surrounds that reveal the impact of physical, intellectual, and historical
context on architectural form, space, and structure. The semester project will require the
design of approximately 15,000 sqft of enclosed space and 15,000 sqft of outdoor space.
