This intensive virtual studio class is for advanced students interested in exploring the relationship between architecture and narrative. The class will begin with research into filmic environments that utilize place, architecture and objects as narrative tools. We will look at the use of interiors and exteriors, circulation between spaces, and the use of props and/or computer generated imagery to "make diagetic space". The first half of the course will focus on research in cinema, art installations, architectural projects and visiting lecturers who will expand on their work in either film or architecture.
In the second half of the course, students will focus on a design project requiring comprehensive and integrative study to create their own narrative space.
