Beschreibung
des Entwurfs-programmes 

We will continue to work with the new city spaces emerging along Zurich’s Gleisfeld. Last semester’s Atlas and the projects that emerged from it have shown how profoundly this development from within could change the city, bringing forests, piers, sports, nature reserves, flood protection, real estate; walkers and cyclists, small happenings and mass gatherings. So much can happen inside the Gleisfeld. But it is within its edges that this potential can connect back to the fabric of the city and create a new reality. The Atlas and projects have identified and described many spaces and places. They have also reflected a powerful critique of the major forces of development at work today and proposed powerful alternatives. We will develop the present themes of landscape and public space in precise architectural terms. Tall buildings are ever-present in this changing landscape and may well become standard. We shall continue our exploration of the standard in architectural production by designing one such tall building, as an independent object or as part of an ensemble. First we will examine the type in the story of architecture through an Atlas of Tall Buildings. The growth of tall buildings over the last century has been closely matched by the radical transformation of construction from a matter of substance to a matter of layers. However, the mythology of architecture’s tectonic power remains firmly engrained in the architectural imagination. Truth to material was one Modernism’s great radical calls — a call that reaffirmed architecture’s engagement in a physically and ethically honest world. But that world has changed technically and politically to such an extent that a new kind of construction now dominates, which eschews the pure ambitions of Modernism and ancient architecture. But this is not about mourning a loss of innocence, but rather to positively explore the potentials of layered complexity. Such construction can lead to a new spatial and experiential paradigm in architecture. What might its standards be? You will be invited to design them, standing tall in the Gleisfeld.

Lernziele 

Analysis Undertake several types of research simultaneously including: Qualitative site/building analysis (photographic, drawing) Systematic analysis (inventory of uses, material history, social history, etc…) Technical analysis (geology, climate, ecology) Interpret and synthesise information above into a concise and ongoing knowledge base for the design project. Assimilate small, fragmentary observations into broad understanding of place, building, etc… Architectural design Design a small sized building incorporating external spaces and other supporting amenities. Use tight programmatic constraints as a creative stimulus for the spatial organisation of the building. Develop a tectonic strategy as central theme in design project. Use building design to demonstrate understanding of wider landscape. Use building design to propose new ways of inhabiting or experiencing wider landscape. Demonstrate ability to manipulate formal architectural language as an end in itself. Technical Develop method of analysis of a central material or construction thesis in term of environmental performance. Demonstrate understanding of principal structural, environmental and constructional performance. Representation Develop a deep understanding of the status and purpose of architectural representation: drawing, sketch, model, text, image... Develop critical ‘eye’ in photographic recording of place. Develop critical understanding of orthographic drawing: artefact versus data (including scale, line weight, surface, construction, …) Develop ability to make fast sketch models and complex presentation models with precise conceptual purpose. General skills Demonstrate ability to work, learn and communicate as a whole studio, in small groups and individually. Demonstrate high level of technical and critical standard in 2D CAD drafting. Develop ability to assimilate a broad range of working practices. Evaluation The semester work will be graded as a whole after the final crit. The grade will reflect the the project presented in the final crit and overall progress during the semester. The final grade will include individual project work and contribution to group work and seminars. There will be no arithmetic breakdown to the final grade. You will be given feedback on progress during the interim crits and in tutorials. Each student is responsible for recording feedback during crits. You are encouraged to ask a colleague to take notes during crits. Questions regarding individual progress can be raised in tutorials. Written warning will be sent to students at risk of failing (however the absence of such letter is not a guarantee of a pass).
