Spatial Investigations

An intermediate studio course designed for architecture and studio art majors wishing to strengthen their visual and spatial responsiveness. Class work explores various forms of drawing in two and three dimensions, including basic architectural rendering, fixed viewpoint perspective, mapping, modeling, and some digital work. Following a series of projects and discussions considering issues of space and place, the physicality of space, and our historic relationship to architecture, each student produces a self-directed final project. Strongly recommended for architecture majors before enrolling in the architectural design sequence at MIT.
