ARC 202: Design Studio #4 introduces students to techniques of site and building composition while it explores precedent as a generative tool. The precedents used are the notions of form, space, and structure embedded in a set of villas by fifteenth century architect Andrea Palladio. The villas and their expanded territories are both precedent and site for the design intervention. They form the foundation for the synthesis of architecture and landscape through an investigation of morphology and context.

Transformations and evolutions of compositional principles will be developed through generative drawings and models. The drawings and models will explore field‐to‐figure relationships in combination with coordination of interior‐to‐exterior and part‐to whole relations. Ultimately, the goal is to engage the architectural legacy of the precedent, valuing architectural history as a foundation for new development without demanding rupture to generate new alternatives.
