Architectural Design Studio 2: Shaping a Place for Arts (ARCH 381) Winter 2019
Architectural Design Studio 2: Shaping a Place for Arts (ARCH 381) Winter 2019

Studio investigations of fundamental design concepts, issues, and processes. Projects and exercises focusing on the concepts of making three-dimensional forms – organization, proportion, scale, human activities, and introductory site and building design relationships. The release of the student’s creative capabilities is a primary concern of the course. Includes individual criticism, lectures, and seminars.

This studio will explore the relationship between architecture and the practice of making and consuming art in a dense urban environment. First, it will investigate a proposed site: a small open lot along Portland’s Park Avenue in the Pearl District. In the second stage of this studio, students will construct a fragment of the art foundation’s façade.
