ONE AND THREE ARCHITECTURES - A MUSEUM OF THREE ROOMS
The central concern of this studio is the exploration and synthesis of mediums and methods; language, visual and spatial. Using the programmatic context of a museum, students will generate content for the project through a critical process of exploring a new working methodology, the 'One and Three' relational method.
This method considers the interrelationships of the following three forms of articulation:
1. Language Essays and journals as a tool and source for content and meaning
2. Visual drawings, paintings, photographs and video works for representation of spatiality
3. Spatial Three dimensional, material manifestations of ideas
The methodology involves the formation of 3 representations of the same idea, creating a surplus of meaning and rigor in the generation of architectural outcomes.
The studio will be broken into 2 parts. Students will first examine 3 works by selected architects and artists. The outcomes of these examinations will then be used as content for a new museum in Melbourne's cultural precinct. This museum will be comprised of 3 rooms, responding directly to the 3 selected works.
