Undergraduate Course: Architectural Design: Any Place (ARCH08006)
|School||Edinburgh College of Art
||College||College of Humanities and Social Science
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 8 (Year 2 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||This module is thematically focused on circumstances and conditions beyond the local. It moves away from ideas of locality to consider issues of foreignness and distance. This thematic focus is supplemented by a broader interest in the city as a condition for architecture. Students investigate a range of everyday practices that constitute the experiences of the contemporary city. Working through a series of studio exercises, students explore these themes in architectural terms. These exercises also support the development of skills in the manipulation of form, volume and built fabric. They do so in the context of ideas of creative agency and design inquiry within broader frameworks of accountability and consequence.
