The studio will emphasize critical thinking on basic architectural issues through the proposal of a group of three domestic spaces in the east side of the city of Buffalo. Through exploration and design, students will deal with spatiality and embodiment in a scale that should be familiar to them. The design of the domestic scale will take the student to explore issues of analysis of precedents, program, movement, geometry, site, scale, materiality, perception, landscape, order, and context, among others, constructing an intense introductory Studio experience to their Graduate program. Through the proposal for three houses for three specific families with three associated huts for professional work (painting, writing and music composing), students will be exposed to a critical understanding of architecture in the city of good neighbors.
