Architecture is practiced in the space between the imagined and the built. Operating in this zone between specula­tions and realizations architects construct plausible fictions that transcend the material facts of the built and connect with broader cultural meaning. These fictions range from the hyper-rational to the trite but are instrumental in under­standing the ambitions of a practice and the visions it intends to construct. This seminar explores the recent history of several of these plausible fictions especially as they relate to form, composition and representation. The course extends the typical reading seminar format to include student’s explorations through both writing and drawing with the goal of formulating our own contemporary design narratives.
