Studio Ideas and Inspiration

Stepping Back

Posted in studio 1a_2010 by mcdanza on 31 March 2010

I’m sure all of you are contemplating all the comments given from the crits yesterday.
As you back track through all your ideas, it is a good idea to go back to the basics: What are the experiential qualities of my design?

I suggest taking a break from studio, sit outside in the nice weather, and read through An Architecture of the Seven Senses by Juhani Pallasmaa.
It is not long, and you can definitely finish it in one afternoon.
His text is a good way of revisiting how each sense informs architecture, which is the focus of most, if not all, of your projects.
You can then use it to carefully structure your arguments for your final presentation.

The pdf is available below:
