Studio 3A_old

Moving from the conceptual and the abstract to the physical realities of building, the work of the third studio of the core sequence aims to productively embrace novelties and differences in the production of vertical organizations. Students consider the uses of precedent and antecedent in their work, while the main investigation examines the particular impact of the building envelope and its material and geometrical determinations on site and a Tall Building form, and the capacity to use transformation as a methodological tool to guide a rigorous approach to decision making. By studying the specificities of the Tall Building envelope students are exposed to the tight dependency existing between serial determinations of both geometric and material order- of the outermost surface, and the spaces it encloses, including the buildings core and structure; construction technology.
