Passed foundationlevel courses or equivalent

Course content

Concepts play a number of different roles in architecture, from explanatory models that allow for theoretical discussion to notions that guide the process of making. This course looks at the making side, addressing the way in which concepts can operate practically and productively in architectural design, as pathways for the creation of new objects and spaces. The focus will be on the productivity of concepts in the process of work.

The course is divided into two parts. The first part studies a group of practical concepts through a weekly lecture followed by a design task. The second part is an analysis by students of the work that they have produced in the first five weeks, resulting in a written and visual document.
