Class Architecture IV

  • Presentation


    It is intended to continue the critical reflection about the urban area under study in the 1st semester, debating its qualities, complexities and specific characteristics that enhance this particular territory.

    In this sense, it is proposed that the Project carried out can serve as an experimental ¿field¿ of the particular themes that each student will develop in their dissertations, testing their ideas (even if embryonic), strengthening them.

  • Syllabus


    Architecture IV will continue Architecture III to look at a project program proposed by the student. The scales and materializations and their implementation should show the full and mature mastery of different dimensions of architecture as an activity, which through the project. In this sense, students are faced with a re-interpretation of the work previously developed in order to, jointly with the faculty define a scale of approach in the project dimension. They will be able to develop the design dimension of their dissertations.

  • Objectives


    Architecture IV will aim to:

    A) To work, as a continuation, the architectural project (with or without urban scale) around the territory under analysis, giving greater focus on the treatment and design of public space. This work can shape the master's thesis project.

    B) To frame and support the development of a design and architectural dimension of research leading to the completion of the master's thesis developed by the student, and in strict collaboration with his / her supervisor (s).
