The Detail Tells the Tale

SP. 21

ARCH 202B: Architectural Design II

Instructor: Farnoosh Rafaie

This studio examines the fertile nature of technical tale by first questioning what material wants to be. A personified exchange, we have pressed, poked, and prodded at the detail to find richer conclusions filled with splendid technicalities. Detail can then “speak” to the resolution and unity of parts which fits into its larger dimensional whole. So let us not rely on the mediocre manners of storytelling, but break its mold completely. Each student will tell a tale through their details.
