Architectural Design VI (2G2/3G5) – Propositions
This studio will explored a number of issues at the forefront of contemporary architectural discourse surrounding the organization and form of the workplace in the 21st Century and its relationship to technology. The relationship between the office workspace and the advancement of building technology has a long history illustrating the tranformative effects of technological progress. The studio interest in this area will be focused on two fronts. The first, will focus on new collaborative technologies of information, speed and decentralization that continue the trasnformation of the workspace. And the second will look at new modes of intergrated systems and materials that have the potential to reshape the space of work in material form.
We will explore this in parallel with the ongoing transformation of the building sector, particulary architectural practice in the wake of a similar adoption of information technologies that have restructured the collective workflow between architects, engineers, fabricators and builders in relationship to both time and space.
