300 – COLLECTIVE ASSEMBLIES

Third year elaborates on the knowledge gained in first and second years. This year will deal with the social aspects of architecture by focusing on new domestic space typologies and civic spaces while challenging students to demonstrate the ability to produce a highly developed and comprehensive architectural project of moderate programmatic complexity.  Strategies of organization and systems of structure, facade, MEP and life safety, as well as the formulation of social concepts will be explored.  The fall curriculum for 301, Post-Familial Domesticities, focuses on the social and typological implications of cohabitation in Brooklyn encouraging investigations into the political, formal, and social aspects of the ever-dissolving line between the private and public sphere. The spring semester for 302, Civic Spaces for Exchange, will engage civic spaces and resiliency in a site in the Rockaway peninsula. Students will engage multiple design issues across systems and scales and carry concepts to a high level of resolution and integration.
