The course develops students' understanding of architecture in relation to society and its changes. In the project work the students explore how architectural structures and public spaces interact in different contexts at local, regional and global levels. The student is trained to see both the individual and societal perspectives on the organization and design of environments. The course increases the student's ability to make informed decisions between different working methods and representational techniques in architectural projects. Analog and digital, as well as text-based and visual tools and representation methods are combined in the project work.
The course is divided into four modules: Strategies and Territories 3 hp Flows and Borders 3 hp Spaces and Transitions 7 hp Representations and Communication 2 hp
