Form + Space

Form + Space is a 3-credit studio course, open to students from all disciplines and serves as an introduction to fundamental notions of architectural form and space and their visual and material articulations. Leading faculty from the architecture and interior design programs serve as studio critics and lecturers, framing the ways in which form, structure and surface are related to spatial and perceptual experience, and the scale and movements of the body. Form + Space studio examines strategies of making, and the different ways in which we perceive and understand three-dimensional space and the built forms that define it, combining design problems with direct research that uses the city of San Francisco as a laboratory. The course also explores the effect of culture and program on various spatial practices and encourages students? engagement with their own bodies as spatial, experiential and cultural referents. Highly recommended for all Architecture and Interior Design students.
