AbstractThe design process is part of preparing for the daily professional life of an architect. Point of departure for this semester will be nine case studies, consisting of existing, curated competition briefs from different countries and fields of work. All of the cases describe accommodation for research and teaching activities at universities.
ObjectiveThe design studio aims to provide an insight into the history and development of spaces at universities and to foster understanding of current course on this issue in several disciplines and in different countries.

This semester the design studio will focus on University Campuses.
Students will develop a design based on a given brief and will deal with the theme through a critical approach. Analysis of relevant case-studies, meticulous understanding of fundamental aspects of the given task, fast track design methods leading to alternative concepts should establish the strategic and factual basis for a critical understanding on how contemporary University buildings and Campuses can be thought today.
ContentThe design process is part of preparing for the daily professional life of an architect. Point of departure for this semester will be nine case studies, consisting of existing, curated competition briefs from different countries and fields of work. All of the cases describe accommodation for research and teaching activities at universities.
The design studio aims to provide an insight into the history and development of spaces at universities and to foster understanding of current course on this issue in several disciplines and in different countries.
Design is understood as a means of critiquing and investigating these wide-ranging fields of activity. The design of the architectural project ensues from analytical understanding of the task at hand, with the goal of helping students develop their own, independent approach to design.
The students will use Rhino3D to design and explain the projects. The spatial experience will be illustrated in filmed sequences, for which they will receive additional support.
Prerequisites / NoticeIndividual work and group work, whereof 3-4 weeks of group work.
Mid-term crits: Dates will follow.
Costs: CHF 30.--.
