In this advanced studio, the first summer session (June 4th–July 9th) will by taught by Nichole Wiedemann with the second summer session taught by Adam Miller.
What is the architecture of a "one-night stay?"
During the first summer session, this advanced studio will focus on the poetics of the habitual –the frequent, the regular and the everyday– with a particular emphasis on the interior. We will examine seemingly dialectical (and often biased) set of relationships, including temporary versus permanent and interior versus exterior, to discover an architecture not exclusively founded on the authority of form, space and/or permanence. We will seek an architecture of the temporary –lasting for a limited time; passing; worldly– that, perhaps, embraces our current existence. In doing so, we will design from the INSIDE-OUT at two scales: the room and the motel.
