ARC 202: Design Studio #4 addresses the synthesis of architecture and landscape. The studio focuses on development of morphology and understanding of context. It engages a set of iconic buildings as precedent as well as site for intervention. The 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 concurrent design of programmed building enclosure and exterior space.
