T 1:00–3:30pm, Anderson Hall, room 210
This seminar situates an architectural project on vagueness alongside four extant projects that remain influential today. Students will study graphic expediency, indexicality, intricacy, and ambiguity through texts and graphic exercises to understand how discursive and visual structures influence architectural thinking and making. 

By investigating the ways in which representational techniques and language have supported frameworks for design, the course speculates that vagueness is especially adept at navigating the potentials of contemporary media and nonspecific words. Far from comprehensive, this seminar cuts a slice out of the architectural sphere to examine how visual and literal codes have been instrumentalized to create new subjectivites, part/whole relationships, and ideologies.
