MARCH-6210: Architectural Analysis

Course Description

 

How do Architects understand the places and publics around us? What skills must we learn in order to observe and interpret these conditions, and then translate such findings into the spatial language of architectural design? This course explores speculative techniques of spatial analysis that study the relationship between cities, buildings and people and lay the groundwork for an architectural practice that is both inventive and contextual. This semester, we will conduct three different kinds of analysis一system analysis, typological analysis and ethnographic analysis一to offer three comparable responses to a single, shared research question: “How do civic institutions and grassroots organizations relate to each other in the shaping of  public life?” This course is coordinated with MArch Studio 3.
