I ASSIGNMENT 01: COMIC ART MANIFESTO 1 You will produce a manifeslo [or template] by which you will interrogate the given design problem o n d develop a methodology [systematic architectural approocti] that will aid in the generation of your architectural woric, A manifesto is a public declaration of pr'nciples a n d intentions; a n d is derived from the Lotin manifesfum. meoning clear or conspicuous. Your monifesto will act as an architectural "parti" statement; exploring botti graphic a n d literory representations of Itie idea.

Pt 1: Questioning + [rejDefining Comic Arts Here you will define [or redefine], in o brief statement, the definition(s) of Comic Art, as you interpret it. Feel free to use graphic examples from the work of others to support your conclusions. As o result, you will derive an orchifeciurol porti [or concept] from your understandings of Comic Art. This parti will b e used by you to develop your design methodology and justifications. A sizable omount of reseorcfi must b e c o n d u c t e d in order for you to better understand the history, ideology, techniques, etc of the c o m i c arts. To help you begin your study you will b e provided with [2] reodings - both from the book. Comics and the City: Urban Space in Print Picture and Sequence. edited by Jorn Ahrens a n d Amo Meteling. Keep in mind that these readings are only meant to get you started a n d ore in no means on ottempt a t on overview of the entire genre of comic arts. These essays provide contrasting viewpoints of two of the arguably most well know comics. Marvel a n d DC, a n d their ideologies of the superhero o n d their relationship to the [their] city. Thus prompting the Riddler's dilemmofic questioning, "When is a man a city?" Reading 01 Uricchio, William. The Botman's Gotham City^": Story, Ideology, Performance. Reading 02 Bainbridge, Jason. "1 a m New York" - Spider-Man. New York City a n d the Marvel Universe.

Pt 3: Questioning + [re]Defining the Program Statement The typology that you will be working with on this project is that of a museum. The specific program/function of the museum is, of course, relative to the nature of the art embodied within it's walls. Your overall assignment will be to develop a schemotic set of drawings a n d experiential images for the new Denver Museum of Comic Art (DMoCAj. As such, you will need to develop a program statement thot is porticulor to this focility o n d that will a c t os a cotalyst for understanding the overall oesthetic, intention, environment, and/or experience of the museum. This statement may expound on particular programmatic elements, however, it is first o n d foremost • document that provides a programmatic "tone" for the project a n d deals vwth function as a w/ide sweeping brush of ideas.

Pt 3; Questioning + [reJDefining Volume Here you will develop a n architectural methodology that will help you manipulate space a n d volume. You will begin by focusing on the void [your site] a n d understond it as o n imaginary volume that must undergo a series of architectural manipulations. These monipulafions will b e informed by the various real and/or perceived forces t h a i ore at work on the site and in your research. Document these forces a n d their causalities through a series of initial diograms. Causality is tiie relationship between an event Itt^e cousej a n d a second evenf (the effect}, where the second event is understood as a consequence of the first.

Pi 4: Drafts Manifestos will consist of (3) double p a g e spreads. Format will b e 10x8 landscape. Color drafts d u e October 26th a t the beginning of class for review in the studio. At which time, a loyout will b e chosen to be used as a templote for the final printing of the manifesto book. All students will then need to coordinate the reformotting of their work to coincide with the template. A reformatted a n d compiled color draft will be due Friday November 4th, prior to the Mid-Review. This document will be marked-up/edited by your instructor preparatory to final printing.

Ft 5; Final Compilation and Printing Completed manifestos will be compiled into a single volume, printed professionolly a n d b o u n d in p a p e r b a c k book formot [see example]. Layout a n d order of content will be determined in consultation with your instructor. Final book must include a cover, title p a g e , table of contents a n d p a g e numbers. Each student will be responsible t o site sources within their designated section. The final compiled Manifesto is due Wednesday November 23rd at the beginning of class. (I) copy will be provided to the instructor, additionol copies for students will need to be coordinated.

TO PRIVILEGE THE METAPHORICS OF THE CITY IS NOT TO LEAVE THE REAL CITY BEHIND... BUT TO INSIST THAT OUR 'REAL' EXPERIENCES OF CITIES ARE 'CAUGHT IN NETWORKS OF DENSE ^AETAPHORICAL MEANING... THE MINGLING OF IMAGININGS AND EXPERIENCE THAT CONSTITUTE THE URBAN. BEN HIGHMORE
