ARCH 502: Architectural Design V Gallery: Let's Practice!


Resolution in architecture includes not only the hard and fixed material surfaces of the architectural body, but the objects, people and actions it contains. A more synthetic understanding of these accumulated effects within the “cells and circuits” of architecture is needed to fully exploit and engage the range of resolution and present the public with an architecture that begins to meet the advancing cultural and social spectacle of an image saturated world. Within this process, Spectacle speculates on the new culture of an architectural practice in different categories: production, discursive, support, documentation, and model making. Each program embeds different levels of architectural resolution and also questions the role of architects within the different spaces of practice.
