Life/Work Practice

SP. 21

ARCH 502A: Architectural Design V

Instructor: Hadrian Predock

Our 502 degree studio section extends the discourse developed in the 501 seminar into discursive and polemical positions related to life-practice (live/work) speculations, ultimately manifested in the design of life/work space(s). Students will invent new versions of life-practice spaces and speculate about new models of living and practicing architecture – some more individually oriented, others more collective, dynamic and communal. Each student will bring specific identities to their life-practices: cultural codes, spatial gradients, policies, ideals, styles, and positions. Students will progressively design their life-practices from the rituals and policies, to the spaces and tools. Each student will propose their own version of a life/work architecture practice. Design proposals will vary depending on the student, ranging from highly synthetic hybrids of life/work to distributed and linked ideas of life/work. It is expected that the projects are complete works of architecture with developed interiors and associated ephemeral objects such as furniture, tools, etc.
