W 9:30am-12:00pm, 210 Anderson Hall
Small, focused, intermediate/advanced-level course in discussion, workshop and/or design-based format on topics related to current research in architecture.
Over the past decades, the conception of books has become an integral part of any architectural practice. This seminar aims to introduce students to the book as a means to think about the production of space, and as a critical vessel to discuss and disseminate architectural ideas. In the first part of the seminar students engage in an in-depth analysis of seminal architectural publications, considering their historical background, conceptual background, and introducing such topics as typography and layout, and in-class discussions of relevant literature. The second part of the seminar is dedicated to the actual “building” of a small architectural publication, which reflects critical and editorial skills as well as the craft of bookmaking.
Open to non-architecture students, seniors and above. Space is limited and registration does not guarantee a space in this course. The final course roster is formulated on the first day of class by the individual instructor and preference may be given to architecture majors.
