GSD Course Bulletin - Fall 2011
02409: Communicating Architecture, The Architect as Author and Editor (VIS 0240900)
Seminar - 4 credits - Limited enrollment
Tuesday 8:30 - 11:30 Gund 505
Monday 3:00 - 6:00 Gund 505
Over the past two years the Course has evolved and become a discussion forum as much as a hands-on lab
- to debate the conditions of communication (in architecture) and the transition from the analogous to the digital
- to experiment with provided as well as personal content and the use of analog and digital media.
- to analyse and exercise the process of editing: selection, structure, sequence and transformation of content.
Through my own experience as publisher, the Course will introduce students to the book and its exclusive attributes and its potentials as a medium for the communication of architecture. Editorial conditions and design rules have changed since the book shows its formerly unique media position with new and challenging offers. The Course will analyse the differences between analogue and digital media and their ability and limits in expressing and transforming architectural atmosphere. It will feature the caracteristics of the book as an object and its materials, the structure, content, the handling of text and image, typography, composition, rhythm and sequence. Knowledge in in-design is recommended.
