Architecture 101 - Part III
Free Closed [?]
Architecture 101 (part 3: from space to architecture)
In part 1 of our course, we explore the state of nothingness and start to understand the idea of “place”. In part 2 we learn to transform a place into a space. Now, we are ready for part 3: to transform a space into architecture.
What does it mean to transform a space into architecture?
“Architecture is the thoughtful making of space.” Louis Kahn
In part 2, we learn that space is composed of mind and matter. Now, in order for us to benefit from this matter, we need to put it in order. And this is exactly what architecture is all about. Architecture is about giving a very specific kind of meaning and symbolic value to a series of different things.
In this part of the course, we will plan, design and construct a system in which to organize and render coherent important matter (that matters to us). A matter of structure and proportions.
By doing so, we will give a new sense to place and space.
Are you ready?
Our 6-month online journey will be celebrated at Abadir in Sicily, where we will set up our final exhibition.
Week 1: materials
Week extra: Architecture 101 Summer Camp at Abadir, in Sicily (where we will build for real). If you are still alive by then, this “physical” 5-day workshop is a course in itself and it will soon be officially announced.
What will I learn?
To see architecture like architects do.
We will also learn a significative amount of extremely interesting (and totally useless) things.
All of the above refers to the conceptual part of our course.
At the end, what do I make?
A video (with a given set of constraints) in which you will show your built 1 to 1 architecture. If one thousand people finish this part 3, we will have a fabulous collection of 1000 videos representing 1000 architectural concepts.
This is the 3rd part of a tripartite course called Architecture 101.
Then, in terms of other kinds of prior knowledge, nothing in particular is required.
You don’t need a smartphone or tablet. But, as we wrote, we imagined a class with thousands of people lost in their phones, from all around the world. In commuters, we trust!
Between 3 and 7 hours a week.
Then, you will get to work on your assignment. Once you complete your assignment, you will upload it to the iversity platform and share it on your preferred social media account(s). Ideally Instagram.
Then, during the weekend, we will give you some time to catch up.
Are you ready?
