Case Studies in Contemporary Construction is a series of experimental seminar/labs that explore the complex forces that influence and shape the final physical form of a building through its development, documentation and delivery. The focus of each year will shift to cover a wide range of evolving issues that are changing the way architecture is practiced.

In this project-based lab, students will explore case studies of contemporary architectural constructions through research. analytical drawings and models that seek to understand and explicate the interrelationships of material flows, logistics, labor, and climate among other pressures that are changing the way buildings are conceived and developed.
