Architecture, Exploration and Reflection

7,5 Credits, Bachelor's level, Summer Term 2019

This summer course offers the opportunity for architecture students to  immerse in a process-oriented project work and to explore a site-specific architectural issue. Within the course, we explore which role architecture can have in relation to social and environmental aspects in society. Critical reflection and evaluation of the own work process and the results are important aspects of the course.

International workshops

Within the course, you can choose to participate in an international workshop together with other students or to work on an individual project. The workshops offered in connection to the course are held at different locations and lasts for 8 - 13 days. You will do some individual work before or after the workshops. The course is assessed through submission of visual material, documentation of the work process and an individual written report.

For individual projects, the student formulates her or his research questions, processes and theoretical aspects for the project based on the conditions presented at the beginning of the course. The project should relate to the overall theme of the course, what can the role of architecture be in relation to social and environmental aspects in society?

The course and tutoring focus mainly on the working process and research. As a student you will meet the teacher and other students on the course for tutorials and seminars using the online video meeting software Zoom. Luciano Landaeta will be the teacher for students working on individual projects.
