February 10-20 , 2017 | 9.00-21.00 daily
Foyer, Department of Architecture

In a work-in-progress format, the exhibition includes the student works - in physical models solely - that were produced during the exploration process towards the articulation of the structural design concept of an architectural structure based on a specific cultural event.

Challenging the prevailing typological practices, the course discusses structural design issues from a topological perspective.

In a teaching framework, the course consists of a series of exercises/ subsequent readings aiming to extract the concrete or abstract properties of the event and translate them to qualities of the spatial composition or/ and principles of the structural arrangement.

In a research context, the work attempts to approach the structural concept as a design resource and investigate the physical model as a tool for diagrammatic reasoning.
