Gesamtkunstwerk: Architecture/Interior Architecture - Elemental Integration As A Pedagogical Foundation For Design Education, Rebecca O'Neal Dagg Mar 2002

Gesamtkunstwerk: Architecture/Interior Architecture - Elemental Integration As A Pedagogical Foundation For Design Education, Rebecca O'Neal Dagg

Proceedings of the 18th National Conference on the Beginning Design Student

The Architecture/ Interior Architecture [ARIA] duel degree program at Auburn University's School of Architecture is a unique design education model that offers a holistic approach to the relationship between interior and exterior space early in the design student's education. This program's mission at a fundamental pedagogical basis incorporates Architecture and Interior Architecture within Auburn's architecture curriculum model, allowing the development of the concept of "total design" into the design mentality of students. Gesamtkunstwerk, the German word most commonly interpreted in reference to Modem Architecture historical discourse to mean "total work of art:' offers inspiration to the ...


Rhetorical Investigations: A General Theory Of Design And Architectural Education, Simon Tomkinson Mar 2002

Rhetorical Investigations: A General Theory Of Design And Architectural Education, Simon Tomkinson

Proceedings of the 18th National Conference on the Beginning Design Student

This paper focuses on the common difficulties in architectural education - its role, and its motives. The construction industry has consistently needed more qualified project managers, more technicians, and better business practices. Yet, a primary tenet of architectural education is that the industry is more qualified to train the student in the intricacies of practice. The education about practice is limited primarily due to the emphasis on design education. What is it that we, as educators, teach in design education?


Building The River: An Introduction To Urban Design In Savannah, Georgia, Christian Dagg Mar 2002

Building The River: An Introduction To Urban Design In Savannah, Georgia, Christian Dagg

Proceedings of the 18th National Conference on the Beginning Design Student

This paper discusses one strategy for exposing architecture students to beginning questions in urban design and how this exposure can be structured within the design studio. Focusing on the city of Savannah, Georgia, the study of urban morphology and resultant building typologies are a basis for the studio research and design proposals completed in the spring of 200 I at Auburn University in Alabama. The studio was cotaught with Brian Mackay-Lyons, who has established his own Architecture and Urban Design practice in Nova Scotia. MacKay-Lyons' practice served as a backdrop for the studio through an emphasis on contextual research, through ...


Rethinking Studio Pedagogy: Teaching Introductory Architectural Design At The Graduate Level, Michael E. Gamble, Richard Dagenhart, Chris Jarrett Mar 2002

Rethinking Studio Pedagogy: Teaching Introductory Architectural Design At The Graduate Level, Michael E. Gamble, Richard Dagenhart, Chris Jarrett

Proceedings of the 18th National Conference on the Beginning Design Student

Over the last two years, our Architecture Program committed considerable intellectual capital to the rethinking of graduate level introductory design studio pedagogy for students entering our Masters of Architecture 1/3? year program. This reevaluation concentrates on several unique challenges intrinsic to the graduate level introductory design curriculum, which include:

The inherent differences between the age and personality profiles of undergraduate and graduate students. Many programs treat the curricula as equal, with graduate students executing the same exercises as undergraduates, only at a faster pace.

The developmental gap that exists in the second year of most M. Arch 1 programs ...


Introduction To Three Dimensional Composition / Dancing On The Digital Divide, Geoffrey Adams, Karen King Mar 2002

Introduction To Three Dimensional Composition / Dancing On The Digital Divide, Geoffrey Adams, Karen King

Proceedings of the 18th National Conference on the Beginning Design Student

Students entering the 3.5Y Masters program at UNM, come to embark on a course of study in architectural design. While all student populations are composed of unique individuals from various backgrounds, this particular group is, at least in an academic discipline by definition heterogeneous, possessing skills and knowledge in diverse fields gained through previous studies and/or employment. What they share is a burgeoning interest in architecture and a willingness to explore design in a studio environment, to start down a path toward a new way of perceiving and engaging the world. This peculiar mix of naivety and sophistication ...


Design's Community Of Knowledge: Identifying And Organizing Design's Fundamental Concepts To Support Teaching And Learning, William R. Benedict Mar 2002

Design's Community Of Knowledge: Identifying And Organizing Design's Fundamental Concepts To Support Teaching And Learning, William R. Benedict

Proceedings of the 18th National Conference on the Beginning Design Student

The words we use and the concepts they represent affect how we see, think and talk about the world. Each community of knowledge (e.g., Architecture, Physics, Sociology, etc.) has a language that is specific to that community or discipline. Membership in a community of knowledge involves learning the community's language and developing an understanding of the concepts that it identifies. Our level of understanding of a community's language can either obscure or clarify-it can help or hinder communication. The degree to which we understand the language and concepts of a community of knowledge is directly related to ...
