Fall 2019, ARCH 262 – IN Detail
This seminar re-evaluates the material nature of buildings by studying and understanding construction details and the new technologies that are revolutionizing design construction and labor relations in architecture. Small when compared to a building’s overall mass, details should be considered the building’s basic genetic in-print determining not just the architecture’s appearance but also its performance. Each detail contributes to the meaning of the whole and simultaneously represents a microcosm of the larger entity. Le Corbusier traced back this idea back to nature where the smallest cell determines the validity of the whole. This gallery features student designs of one 1: 1 detail (or smaller) as part of this course.
