A situation is the manner in which objects and/or people are disposed in a particular location and time. As the third and final studio in the graduate foundations sequence, situation builds on form’s emphasis on formal and geometric logics by focusing on the interactions of program and circumstances (real and virtual) at various scales, temporalities, and platforms. The semester introduces a range of design strategies and representational techniques, with the ambition to test architecture’s capacity for sponsoring activities and anticipating scenarios. Students will be challenged to situate architecture in contexts not defined only by locality or geography, but also by social, cultural and institutional conditions.
