In this seminar students will familiarize themselves with the history and evolution of the practice of architecture in an effort to better understand the significance of instruction and instructability. Students will be expected to develop a technical understanding of disciplinary graphic and annotative standards as they relate to the production of architectural construction documents as well as an intellectual appreciation of extradisciplinary methods of instruction-based production as they related to the fields of conceptual art, music and computer science.
Lectures, readings and class-time conversations will together provide a foundation for understanding of the importance of instruction in the practice of architecture. Production-based assignments will be issued as an opportunity for students to demonstrate their technical and intellectual understanding of the subject matter.
