This studio seeks to explicate the complex relationships between form, structure, spatial organization and tectonic qualities through precedent analysis and building design. The studio starts with a study of structural systems in the context of a series of abstract examinations of the elements –both discreet and aggregate –that comprise complex structures. The studio then continues to a project that examines the structural study in the context of a site and program that make explicit demands of an architectural design. The project culminates with a coherent building design that is both technically credible and conceptually compelling.
