Communicative technique and variation allow designers to strategically explore ideas and develop conceptualizations that define processes for architectural design. Exercising disciplinary diversity in the design process allows for fluid expressions and translations of ideas from instance to instance.
“…it revalues the role of deeply rooted intuition, of imagination, of sensitivity, and of the body in the transmission knowledge”. (Nicolescu 1999)
Architectural design integrates a wide range of disciplines, from graphic design to structural engineering, from information technology to social sciences, etc. Designers must develop sensibilities for instinctively filtering information, situation, and circumstance through multiple disciplinary dynamics, strategizing through conceptualization, iteration, and communication, and developing techniques for re-framing questions or problems as it is being solved. Bruce Mau’s book “Massive Change” refers to issues affecting our environment as a series of ‘economies’; trans-disciplinary mechanisms for evaluating various conditions, situations, and, in this case, functions for creating sustainable environments, movements, materials, etc.
Does incorporating variation in purpose and intention of design instance instill clarity for reasoning, perceiving, and operating in a trans-disciplinary dynamic?
This abstract proposes to disseminate previous and new theoretical approaches to these stages of an architectural pre-thesis seminar, as well as student results, within the framework of developing disciplinary awareness and agility through topics of Modern Concepts, Massive Change, and trans-disciplinary exercise for time-based imagery, art installation, and architectural design.
