URBAN PROGRAM

ARCH 352-452
Carefully consider the following approaches as you construct your seven (7) new model iterations @ 1/32″=1′-0″ for Friday. We will discuss the criteria outlined below in studio on Friday.
When confronted with an urbanistic program, an architect may either:
a. Design a masterly construction, an inspired architectural gesture (a composition)
b. Take what exists, fill in the gaps, complete the text, scribble in the margins (a complement)
c. Deconstruct what exists by critically analyzing the historical layers that preceded it, even adding other layers derived from elsewhere-from other cities, other parks  (a palimpsest)
d. Search for an intermediary-an abstract system to mediate between the site (as well as all given constraints) and some other concept, beyond city or program (a mediation)
