In a work-in-progress format, the exhibition includes the student works 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.
