studio format

This studio has been run as an advanced research lab, a core subgroup of the Network Architecture Lab for fall 2006. As such, students are lab members for the duration of the semester and perhaps longer. Instead of being organized from the top-down, with an instructor doling out exercises for students, studio is itself organized on the model of a lab aiming toward a common goal. We worked individually, in groups, and as a unit to produce material for an upcoming ACTAR publication on cities while also addressing the electronic world of the Internet and the physical site of the end of semester installation. Our goal has been to produce finished work for four sites: print, web, multimedia installation and presentation. Throughout, students have been asked to use architecture as a mode of inquiry to investigate and represent the phenomenon in question.
