BODY

Thematic Lectures Building indexes the body. It takes a measure of and represents the size and qualities of the bodies that inhabit it. Building responds to our bodies, asking them to assume new positions and arrangements.

SEAT DESIGN

Design a seat.

[W]e do not live in a homogeneous and empty space, but on the contrary in a space thoroughly imbued with qualities and thoroughly fantasmatic… We do not live in a kind of void, inside of which we could place individuals and things. We live inside a set of relations that delineates sites that are irreducible to one another and absolutely not super-imposable.”

BOUNDARY

Buildings come between us and our environment, they put us into place. That is, architecture both responds to and frames the nature of the things and activities it places, and to the qualities of the locations its takes place in. Furthemore, architecture always represents these things and activities, its sites and situations, by indexing them – by pointing to and taking measure of them. IN PLACE / ANY PLACE is a studio course that introduces students to a concern for location. Continuing from a study of architectures indebtedness to its mode of construction, it asks students to explore the ways in which architecture is indebted to things beyond itself. In Place / Any Place develops student’s skills in design inquiry, and is structured through an empirical design methodology; each design exercise will begin with a measured survey of a specified thing, activity or site. Design projects ask students to make architectural proposals that enjoy the communicative potential of architecture to point to and take measure of the place it takes and the things and activities it places.

Building indexes its location. It takes a measure of and represents the concrete characteristics of its location. Buildings respond to these characteristics, but also change those characteristics, altering them to their inhabitants needs.

Aalto, Saynatsalo Town Hall Frampton, Critical Regionalism Auge, Non-Place Zumthor, Swiss Pavilion

Building always establishes relations between the things they accommodate and the sites they take place in. Buildings respond to established boundaries, existing codes of publicity and privacy, but also establishes further boundaries, and new codes of publicity and privacy.

Building indexes its environment. It takes a measure of and represents the climatic phenomena that cut across it. Buildings always respond to the environment of their location, but also effect that environment, tailoring it to the needs of its accommodation.

The course is structured through three nested design exercises, that works from the small to to the large. The first exercise [SEAT] explores the way in which architecture is indexes the things and activities it places, taking a measure of a specific aspect of the body, and designing a seat to accomodate it. The second exercise [SITE] explores the way in which building indexes its location, taking a measure of an aspect of a specified site, and making a design proposal that responds to it. The final exercise [MUSEUM] extends these concerns, asking students to consider the arrangement of a collection of seats and range of activities on a number of varied sites.

Poul Kjaerholm Chair 20 1968

“I confront the city with my body; my legs measure the length of the arcade and the width of the square; my gaze unconsciously projects my body onto the facade of the buildings, where it roams over the mouldings and contours, sensing the size of recesses and projections; my body weight meets the mass of the door, and my hand grasps the door pull as I enter the dark void behind. I experience myself in the city and the city exists through my embodied experience. The city and the body supplement and define each other. I dwell in the city and the city dwells in me.”

EXCERCISES

“Dance is a body that forgets its fetters, its weight. It is a new beginning, because the dancing gesture must always be something like the invention of its own beginning. And it is also play, of course, because dance frees the body from all social mimicry, from all gravity and conformity. Dance is a circle drawn in space, but a circle that is its own principle, a circle that draws itself. Dance is the prime mover: Every gesture and every line of dance must present itself not as a consequence, but as the source of mobility. Finally, there is the air, the aerial element, summing it all up. Dance involves the breath, the respiration of the earth. This is because the central question of dance is that of the relation between verticality and attraction. Verticality and attraction enter the dancing body and allow it to manifest a paradoxical possibility: that the earth and the air may exchange their positions, the one passing into the other.”

Movement and Climate

Every building site is cut-across by conditions that extend beyond it, and every buildings temporarily engages with those conditions as they move through it. This studio asks students to engage with an extended understanding of context, considering urban and environmental conditions that extend beyond their locality. It asks students to explore architectures ability to corrall and choreograph the social performance of the city, aswell as the technical performance of tits own fabric. ANY PLACE is structured through a series of exercise that work from the big to the small – from an urban anaylsis to technical and environmental resolution. The first exercise [SITE] asks student groups to make a survey of the systems of circulation and climatic phenomena that cut across a specified urban site. The second exercise [DANCE CENTRE} asks students to design a building that responds to the dynamic characteristics of that site, and it intended programme. The final exercise [STUDIO] asks students to resolve the detailed design of the buildings principle studio, satisfying specific environmental requirements of dance studios.
