The Materiality of Schools, Sites, and Sheds

ARCH 202b: Architectural Design II

Instructor: Rob Berry

This studio investigates materiality and its representation. Using both the built work and projective drawings of architects associated with the “L.A. School” as a precedent for material experimentation, the studio explores attitudes toward materiality through a series of speculative transformations and design proposals. The final design project is the adaptive reuse of a typical L.A. industrial shed for a small educational space.
