Specificity in architecture (Narrative design I)
1. The course is part of the Basic Design Studio. Through architectural projects, this Studio investigates different experiences of architecture and conceptions of space, in relation to the synthezising design process.
2. The course/project goal is to increase the student's knowledge in this area/field and skills/knowledge in the field of architecture in general. The students will enter the project with varying degrees of knowledge/skills and will subsequently end up at different levels at the end of the course/project.
3. The individual student must show an increase in the particular skills/knowledge offered in the studio and in the field of architecture in general.
How could the conception of narrativity be transformed into very specific architectural expressions in a project (a building for an extremely unique person or function in an urban context)?
Course main content
Studies and discussions of narrativity and different theories. Architectural case studies.
Development of individual project design.
The project programme will be developed for a specific artistic person with a specific personality and extensive history - in Stockholm (or in another city). There will be some alternatives provided (authors, poets, artists, film directors, coreographers, musicians...) but it´s also possible to choose other alternatives and urban contexts. The brief should include a house/apartment with a garden, a working space for the artist and other odd things. As an alternative it could include other programmes or functions.
