Course Description

" You Can't Die in Disney World "
( as in chaos )

A current visit to the Disciplinary Zoo of Architecture Now ( DZOAN ) would include at a minimum:

· A Pavilion of Positions
A series of multi-environmental
conditions housing a collection
of Positional Species of
imperceptible differences

· A Conservatory of Form
An unsustainable collection of
look-At-Me's, each requiring an
exceptional, one-of-a-kind,
hermetic, protective enclosure

· An Inneractive Observatory of
Multi-disciplinary Conceits
A series of blended entrapments
designed to seduce the
uncommitted soul of a creative

· A Maze of Mis/Dis-Placed Cultural
Acts of Architectural Transplants
A virtual environment of every-
where- nowhere-anywhere
simultaneous realities

· A Laboratory of Endless Organific
A Cabinet of Computational
Curiosities - exotic electronica

· A Wax Museum of Ten "Special"
The Magician
The Hawk
The Accent
The Narrow
The Super Narrow
The Narrowest
The Exclusive Inclusive
The All Inclusive
The Brain
The Drain

· A Classroom for Teaching
An enormous undistinguished
space of infinite media
resources - void of any presence
of the humane

This studio will take a visit to the DZOAN and make some personal Architecture.
We will meet each week on Wednesday and Thursday (maybe with an occasional exception).
Each student will select a site and be assigned a different program to bring to the zoo.
The studio is intended for architecture students.
