Innovative Dwellings: Case Studies in Multi-Unit Housing
Friday October 18, 2019 (All day) to Thursday December 5, 2019 (All day)
The exhibit showcases precedent studies completed by sophomore architecture students in their Fall 2019 Arch 2000 studio course. In groups of three or four, students researched, analyzed, and constructed – in drawings and physical models – a selected precedent. Then, they summarized and compiled their information in a hand-crafted booklet. The work was completed in one week.
Students analyzed residential typologies that celebrate the interplay between how one lives, works, and creates, both individually and collectively. By studying programmatic relationships, site organization, spatial composition, and material expression, students were prompted to question their understanding of residential architecture and imagine the potential of new housing typologies.
Through this investigation, viewers will be able to see how architects have challenged themselves with the concept of what it means to dwell.
Following the exhibition and lessons learned from the precedent study, students will design a Faculty-in-Residence and Gallery Space for the School of Museum of Fine Arts, in Boston, MA.
The exhibit will be on view through December 5, 2019. Please join us in the Schumann Library for an exhibit reception on October 25, 2019 at 4:00 p.m.
