Design Studio 1A

Fall 2015 // Woodbury School of Architecture

Instructors: Heather Flood, Anali Gharakhani & Jason King

The aim of the 1A Design Studio is two-fold: 1. to introduce students to the discipline of architecture, and, 2. to provide a technical foundation for engaging in the practice of architecture.
Phase I: Black, White, Grey
Project one introduces students to fundamental techniques of geometric control towards the production of architectural form. Project one also introduces students to fundamental ways of representing geometry and form in two-dimensional and three-dimensional media. Beginning with a three dimensional grid at one inch intervals, each student will produce four variations of the cube using only straight lines (black), four variations of the cube using curved lines (white), and four variations of the cube using both straight and curved lines (grey) for a total of twelve variations. Each variation will be physically modeled using a range of techniques and each variation will be drawn in two dimensions and printed on paper using a range of standard drawing types.
Phase II: Live, Work, Play
Project two challenges students to negotiate the formal outcomes in the first project against the contextual realities of a program and a site. In addition to understanding the formal consequences of geometry, each student will now be required to also understand the spatial consequences of form. A feedback loop will be established between geometry, form, and space that pushes design forward in a nonlinear manner. Beginning with one of the grey models from project one, each student will produce a fine grain of formal articulation that responds to issues of egress, use, and site. Additionally, the formal articulation developed in project two is expected to enhance qualities of space. The final design proposal will be modeled physically in three-dimensions and will be drawn two-dimensionally using a range of standard drawing types.
