UC, Berkeley | [IN]Arch Summer Design Workshop | GSI for Professor Keith Plymale | Summer 2011
[IN]ARCH is an 8 week studio, designed to cross the threshold into the world of architectural thinking & design. The architecture studios are formal, intensive and structured for experimentation with physical ideas. We make making models (physical & Digital) draw, photograph, collage, montage, diagram, print, scan, map and write as we work. Your architecture studio will become a place of refuge, to develop a new lens for seeing and understanding the world around you. In studio we transform invisible ideas into form.
Studio lessons establish and fortify links between architecture and the allied arts. While dealing with landscape, site, function and program, many pursuits reflect immediate and direct associations with music, painting, collage, literature, dance, theater, filmmaking & all of design.
The [IN]arch studios, place emphasis on the re-iterative process, three recurring methods for making things:
- Analog Drawing: to connect the eye’s observations to the hand’s description through.
- Digital Modeling: to explore conceptual ideas by making 3-D digital models.
- Physical Modeling: to embody material ideas in model form using the CED workshop.
“The summer I spent at Berkeley was a perfect beginning to my career and academic pursuits in architecture. Not only was the program fun and engaging, but it was extremely motivating. My section teacher played a huge role in motivating and inspiring me. His constant energy and positive attitude were contagious in the studio and had a big impact on the level of my work.”
