Foundation level in Architecture. 

Om emnet

T AP is a building design studio concerned with the measurable and immeasurable qualities of architecture. It is a studio where the students are to develop an individual architectural project from abstract concept to concrete solution. It is a studio where spatial, structural, material and tectonic considerations will be based on explicit architectural ambitions and design criteria defined by each student.

 

The brief for the spring 2021 semester will be to design a small to medium sized project in a specific landscape. Some framework for the project will be given to the students as objective constraints concerning site conditions and building function, however the work of the semester will begin with further development of individual design criteria through subjective investigations into landscape qualities and programmatic potential.

 

An important element in the studio will be the question of how the qualities of a site can influence the architectural decisions: The choice of structure and materials, and the design of spatial configurations and qualities.

 

The project will be conceived and developed in two and three dimensions until it reaches completion in a scale relevant to the task.

Praktisk organisering og arbeidsmåter

Pedagogy

The main pedagogical tool of the TAP studio is the exchange between given constraints and individual freedom in the design process.

 

Methods

The studio will explore how different representational methods can be used as a tool to promote progression in the design process.

 

Activities

In the beginning of the semester each student is to present her/his portfolio.

The design process will be divided into distinct phases from idea to detailed project. Each phase will be reviewed collectively.

There will be studio tutoring, lectures on architecture from teachers and invited practitioners and reviews with external critics.

An excursion to relevant architectural sites will be part of the studio.

Form of assessment

The students will be evaluated on:

The development and final quality of their projects

Their participation in lectures, reviews and discussions

Their contribution to the studio exhibition

 

There are no grades, the students are assessed to Pass/Fail

 

Workload

T A P will require full time studies and the work load is expected to be substantial.

Pensum

Literature

A compendium of relevant texts will be made available at the start of the studio. The texts will be the basis for collective talks throughout the semester.
