Architecture 101 - Part I
Free Closed [?]
Architecture to convert a place into a state of mind.
What is a place?
Without a concept, we can’t have a place.
If we want to create space, in the first instance, it has to happen in our mind. When a conceptual vision takes form in our minds, a place (with its own spatial features) is born.
Architecture 101 is an introduction to space and architecture through 101 exercises. A six-month journey divided into 3 courses “online” on iversity (part 1, part 2 and part 3), one final exhibition / graduation party. If you are still alive after all of this daunting process, there will be a one-week workshop “offline”, where we will go one step beyond.
Part 1: From Nothingness to Place (Jan 5 to Feb 28, we will work in 2d)
Exhibition / Graduation at Abadir, in Sicily (Jun 19 to Jun 21, we set up our fancy exhibition)
Architecture 101 (part 1: from nothingness to place)
To start our journey, we will deal with the absence of space and place.
As Ang Lee or Paul Valery would respectively say :
In a different way, Ludwig Wittgenstein taught us that when things have no name, they don’t exist. Hence in order to understand things, we have to start with worlds in which things have no name. Pieces of music without sound. Televisions without signal.
We will go through the process of shaping meaning. Articulate and complex meanings, defining relationships between mind and bodies, bodies and places. Little by little, we will encounter places and see the world taking shape.
All of this, using a “hands-on” system (you will by doing).
Week 1: taking pictures
To see places like architects do.
We will learn to stare, observe and see.
All of the above refers to the conceptual part of our course.
At the end, what do I make?
A booklet (with a given proportion, size, appearance) where you will collect all of your visual experiments. Each booklet devoted to a specific “place”. If one thousand people finish this part 1, we will have a fabulous collection of 1000 booklets.
In terms of prior knowledge, nothing in particular is required.
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?
