Admission to AHO and successful completion of three years bachelor level studies (180 ECTS) and a desire to conduct your own experimental artistic research on moving images producing and containing architectural phenomena and conditions.

NOTE:

This elective course is only open for students in 40 531 Body and Space Morphologies : Catharsis VIII - Acting and the Collective VIII + LISTA Field-Studio I

This elective course is mandatory for students who are planning to work for longer periods in Lista.

 

Om emnet

Body and Space Morphologies is a research based teaching program that offers a series of elective courses and master studios in explorative architectural design, sensing and thinking. The aim of the studio course series is to work and deeper investigate primal architectural phenomena and conditions, and to develop those into experienced distinct architectural sensations or interests. The elective courses on Architecture & Film are for students that wish to create their own architectural problem(s) through studies in film-making and the production and discussion of moving imagery; for students who have an urge to seek deeper into particular architectural issues and who want to challenge their own creative process and to get to know themselves better in the making and understanding of an architecture. Beyond the success of a mere problem-solving and/or established architectural critique, Body and Space Morphologies studios and elective courses prepare and try to enable students to conduct their own architectural artistic research.

Architecture & Film Fall 2019:
An investigation towards a discursive space in video/film. Architectural body and space in film have since the early days of film inspired and influenced architectural practice. New production and representation techniques in 3D-tools, games, film, and video continue to challenge our understanding for, and development of the architectural space.

The elective course Architecture & Film will focus on the morphology of body and space through investigations in photographic and moving images. The aim with the course is to further understand, influence and critically develop the architectural space through a phenomenological and perceptual approach. The course uses the video camera and editing software as creative tools to individually observe, register, and interpret different situations, sensations and phenomena – and with the aim to anew reflect upon and inform architectures spatial properties.

Collaborations: 

 - Julie Dind, scholar, Performance and Performance Studies, Pratt Institute New York​

Læringsutbytte

Knowledge:
The ability to prepare and conduct an advanced visual experimental architectural design research through the work on and manufacturing of moving imagery; including process preparation/adaption, development of own working method, critical verbal/written reflection on the basis of ones own visual material (moving imagery), and the conclusion of the research in a final presentation and film-screening. The students learn how to conceive and perceive architectural form, space and body within the autonomous and un-programmed architectural construct produced and discovered on screen, and how to further discuss the occurring architectural phenomena as conditions within a body and space morphology discourse.

Skills:
The students will receive an introduction to theories of architecture, film, and video connected to the topic of the course. Weekly practical exercises will provide a thorough basic knowledge of the use of digital video camera and editing software (Adobe Premiere and After Effects) as the tools for registration, observation and creative interpretation. Exercises, lectures, and discussions contribute to give the students the opportunity to develop a critical stance on the use of camera/editing software as architectural tools in order to further facilitate an advanced, experimental design based on a current, critical architectural discourse. The students discover, retrieve and nourish architectural ideas from an immediate and impulsive reaction i.e. through intuitive and reflective filmmaking.

Competence:
In the final workshop week that focuses on approaching “the problem of body”, every student should be able to sense and aware body through architectural space and the making or active on-looking of a video camcorder as their bodily extension and intuitive reflective subjective tool that makes a new reality. In textual works we use the course experience to argue for how a new bodily reality or architectural space is created in the video montage – a body and space that cannot exist outside of the video.

The goal of the studio is to skill students towards independent and self-sufficient artistic architectural research that produces new architectural content, awareness and ideas; preparing them both for their final experimental architectural thesis/diploma but also for an artistic parallel to scholarly research in general (e.g. the alternative PhD as offered by the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme). In general, students are enabled to trust their creative work and seeing/reading ability towards strong and independent yet sufficient architectural content and ideas. They mature in their personal architectural awareness and should be able to make their artistic voice heard, no matter what context they operate in, through the work with moving imagery.

Praktisk organisering og arbeidsmåter

The main activity is the artistic research / architectural design based on the individual capacity to produce and read moving imagery with an architectural content. The course starts with a brief historical, theoretical and philosophical discussion on film in general, and on kinetic representation of architectural space in particular. Students will be introduced to the field of investigation through lectures, literature and a series of films and video art.

Exercises in video sketching* and video editing will train the students’ practical skills and insight in the relation between space and the image, and space in the image. Each course day starts with an hour-long talk on the challenge of the day (mandatory lecture). The students manufacture their video individually and then screen and discuss the video work in plenum.

Mandatory reading material is handed out on the respective course days. A literature list is available online and serves as a recommended reading list (not mandatory). *Video sketching: to draw – to doodle – to paint with video.

Work Effort/Demands
A typical course day consists of a lecture, the screening of a film/video and the production and discussion of the video sketches. The students work individually with the tasks and deliver at the end of the day. The material produced is discussed in plenum. Two days are reserved for an in-depth training in the video editing software. Each course day demands 7-8 hours of attendance and work.

The final workshop-week has its own outline and demands daily attendance and work. This year's focus will be on the human body in motion and in the meeting with spatial infrastructures and/or obstacles. The course collaborates for this week together with the French/Swiss Butoh dancer Julie Dind. The results of that collaboration will be published.

Om emnet

In this studio we will use the framework of critical restoration to explore the impact of tourism in the built environment. Students will work individually on a semester long-design project resulting in specific proposals for the restoration and adaptive reuse of existing tourist sites.

With our cell phone cameras, facebook and other miscellaneous (social) media, we capture and consume architecture for pleasure and curiosity. But all of this sampling is more than just a meaningless collection of virtual data. Its dissemination and decontextualization creates new narratives, parallel realities that have power over architecture. As eloquently described by Superstudio’s Salvages, in many cases what matters “is not so much the physical reality […] but rather the metaphysical idea of a mythical land whose reality has become a legend”.

What role does the tourist have in the maintenance (or destruction) of our built environment? How should architecture mediate between the growing visitor numbers and our new icons? Architectural interventions, big and small, can alter the way a site is perceived. This is particularly relevant with tourism or sites that are visited by hundreds of people on any given day.  The studio will therefore examine different forms of organized tourism and the impact it has on our built environment.

According to the World Tourism Organization, tourism in every continent has practically doubled over the last 15 years — growing 7.0%  and welcoming more than 1.3 Billion tourists last year alone, the highest increase in decades.

While international travel continues to increase, mass tourism has established itself as one of the most lucrative industries, capable of sustaining entire national economies. From cheap airline tickets, virtual search engines like Airbnb and Kayak; to google-translate and travel blogs reporting on train schedules and toilets in remote places; the experience of travel has completely transformed over the last decade. However this is just the beginning. As the population of emerging economies like Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRICs) rise into the middle class and leisure time becomes available, the growth of tourism will explode to new levels.

Tourism infrastructure can become a catalyst for the creation of new social and economic value. Tourists have a big role to play in the present and future of our built environment, often contributing (unknowingly) to the survival or destruction  that which they cherish and defining the politics and development of a place.

From Supertudio’s salvages to CyArk and Faktum Arte’s replicas and UNESCO’s conservation project, this studio will seek to explore the politics and material challenges of the preservation practice. We will read and discuss preservation theory and work with different surveying techniques to document and analyze existing tourist destinations. Paying close attention to material qualities and looking for lessons on construction techniques while reflecting on the architectural ambitions of previous authors and the context that fostered those projects.

Later in the semester participants will be asked to develop a proposal restoring a given site. Large scale models and elaborate drawings will be important tools to develop the architectural nuances of each of the projects.

Essential to our studio will be, of course, exercising the role of the architectural tourist. Thus, we will have a field trip to Hong Kong, involving walking tours, participating in local events and visiting contemporary practices and examples of restoration projects.

This will be a parallel studio run in conjunction with Hong Kong University (HKU). On our study trip, we will work in the HKU campus, where we will hold our mid-reviews and to participate in local events. (Further details regarding the collaboration and program with HKU will be provided at the beginning of the semester.)

Forkunnskapskrav

A third semester Master course (only available for students in their final year). Open for all students from interaction and service design. Students are required to have passed at least one of the interaction and service design courses given at the Master level (Interaction design 1&2, Service design 1&2). Priorities will be given to students that have passed two of these courses. Students are required to follow up and expand on their previous chosen specialisation/field (interaction and/or service design) in which they can document advanced design skills through a portfolio and application.

Recommended prerequisit knowledge

This course builds on the design skills and methods learnt across the previous Master courses in interaction and service design. In “Digital Service Experiences” students and teachers integrate and push these skills and mindsets to create projects that explores the possibilities for designing for digital service experiences across interaction and service design. The course is recommended for students with a strong foundation in interaction or/and service design, that want to develop and extend their skills across these fields.

Om emnet

“Digital Service Experiences” is an advanced Master course in interaction and service design. The course addresses current developments in the design of digital services, with an emphasis on experiential, creative and innovative qualities. The field of digital services is growing, and the design possibilities and challenges in this field are rapidly evolving. As designers we need to interpret and explore this changing landscape, and create our own methods and perspectives on how digital services can deliver valuable and meaningful experiences, empowering users and citizens, and through this expand the tools and mindsets for design as a discipline.

In this course students will develop projects across 3-5 themes and modules. Themes and modules will reflect current research and industry trends and will be updated each year. The modules will be run by different teachers, and involve a range of internal and external experts. The modules can be connected to research projects, external partners or emerging problematics within the field of interaction and service design. The themes will reflect current developments in the fields, and therefore change over the years. Current themes might include: new methods for digital service prototyping, ritual design and experience, novel techniques and creativity methods in digital design, exploration of technology in an interaction and service context, the ethics and politics of digital services, pop-up service piloting, as well as themes that reflects innovations in the digital service sector.

Students work individually or in small groups depending on the demands of the themes and modules. Each module will be followed by a supervisor and/or a partner. Partners and supervisors depend on the themes that the projects take up. Each module supervisor will be responsible for the students during the module. 

As this is a final year Master course the students are expected to be self-driven and mature within their own practice. Together the students are expected to integrate skills and knowledge across interaction and service design, working either individually, inparallel, or in teams.

The main teaching structure is mentoring on project level and an ongoing evaluation of progress. There is a common structure for milestones and core-deliverables throughout the modules (development of project descriptions and plans, documentation and deliverables, and main presentations). Co-learning is central across the modules and students will be involved in developing research, lectures and materials that will be shared with the whole group.

Læringsutbytte

a. Knowledge:

-  The core knowledge outcome of the course is to integrate and mature the processes and methods learnt in interaction- and service- design across the Master of Design. 

- Further, students are expected to develop domain-specific knowledge across their projects.

- Knowledge about advanced themes in the field of digital services.

 

b. Skills:

- Develop and mature individual skillsets as designers across interaction- and service-design.

- Developing knowledge on emerging or newly relevant themes in the field of digital services. 

- In “Digital Service Experiences” students develop and expand core project-handling skills. Including scoping, research, project-description, time-management and communication.

 

c. General competence:

Across “Digital Service Experiences” the goal is to develop the maturity of the students’ design competence and skills . This is done by both focusing on exploration and professionality on an advanced project-level.

Praktisk organisering og arbeidsmåter

The main activities of the course will be project- and module-specific. Across the course there will be a focus on maturing skills for self-driven project planning, developing and scoping. The course is run in a studio setting, and co-learning across the projects, with some shared lectures and presentations etc, are important. Students need to schedule their own mentoring sessions and develop project plans for each module.
