Microarchitecture. BAU

Description

Topic: Microarchitecture

Briefing: The goal of the course is to to experience a dimension of design between architecture and interior, a dimension big enough not to be a product, small enough not to be architecture. In the course we will investigate our proximal space examining relations between body and space.

Space is the boundless three-dimensional extent in which objects exist and events occur and have relative position and direction.

Physical space is often conceived in three linear dimensions, although modern physicists usually consider it, with time, to be part of a boundless four-dimensional continuum known as spacetime.

What: Students will design a space traslating one of the followign concepts/activities into space:

Love, Rest, Contemplate, Meditate, Play, Listen, Eat, Pray

Dimensions: The installation of the students will take a maximunt amount of space of 2m x 2 m x 2m, everything has to fit this maximum space, there is no limit for about the minimum space.

Basic Attributes of the designed space:

Light – Heavy – Light – Dark – Open – Closed – Smooth – Rough – Empty – Full – Sunny – Shady – Orderly – Chaotic – Silent – Noisy – Natural- Artificial – Warm – Cold – Sharp – Soft – Private – Public – Calm – Excited – Comfortable – Uncomfortable
