Obligatory, Semester 8, ECTS: 8
The theme of the studio revolves around the condition of symbiosis. The design objectives, differentiating among teams, regard spaces of habitation. Habitation, temporary or permanent, under common or uncommon circumstances, will be investigated in the context of symbiosis. The idea of symbiosis can be expressed in many different ways and with different strength. It may deal with small or large groups of people or families. It might be statutory and continuous or loose and coincidental. In any sense, it introduces the theme of habitation as a hypothesis of a human community and not as an entrenched shelter of a person or a family core.
