This seminar will examine a series of readings on the relationships between making/building, dwelling, and thinking. Authors whose work we will examine include Kenneth Frampton and several others who argue for a fundamental relationship between tectonics and architecture and, thus, an interest in the detail; as well as broader perspectives on phenomenology from works by Heidegger, Bachelard, Meagher, Frascari, Merleau-Ponty and others.
