Class ARCH 597
Class Title Architectural Detailing
Description The objective of this course is to explore the relationship between the ideas behind a project and the process of giving those ideas substance in architectural terms. The seminar explores "design" as a process which extends through to the completion of a building, where "detailing" is an integral part of the design process and in which the nature and assembly of the parts can be informed by or can inform the larger design issues of the building as a whole. The course does not attempt to develop a catalog of typical detail solutions to be applied, but rather stresses a way of observing, thinking about the issues presented in the seminar and exploring them in each student's individual projects.
