SEARCHING We will search spaces and how they are made by focusing on what is symptomatic of our present moment. What is shaping and enabling alternative building typologies? Are digital technologies triggering spatial inventions? And how is the built environment made? What are the economies of re-making? TESTING The second part of the year is focused on questioning what defines spaces. How are spaces regulated? The coding of sensations can construct pleasures instead of controlling behaviours: responsiveness of materials, regulation of artificial lights, noise levels, and so on, will be explored through testing and making. Can we master some of these parameters and conditions? IMAGINING Towards the middle of the academic year we will imagine and construct modes of life shaped by unpredictable settings and challenge how they are translated into work that provokes unexpected thoughts. Who is the audience? And how do we communicate? Through re-enactments, forms of activism, visual forecasts and rational arguments, we will explore how our work constructs and engages with an audience. Throughout the academic year, we will actively construct relations between processes, tools and agendas that open up multiple possibilities for exploring and expanding our study of architecture.
