Courses taught by Kiel Moe
01101: First Semester Core: PROJECT (STU 0110100)
Core Studio - 8 credits
Monday Wednesday Friday 2:00 - 6:00
Project is the first core studio of the four-semester sequence of the MArch I program. With a multiplicity of references, Project may refer to fundamental modes of architectural representation, the mapping of the subject in the larger objective context, or a conceptual foray into territory unknown.
A series of focused and intense design exercises requires students to investigate fundamental disciplinary issues of architectural thought, practice, and representation. As the introductory studio in the first professional degree program, the curriculum addresses the varied educational backgrounds of incoming MArch I candidates. Specifically, students are encouraged to leverage their varied expertise in the sciences, humanities, and other disciplines to find provocative and perhaps unexpected motivations of architectural form. Techniques of representation and iterative development across various mediums will be required.
Prerequisites: Enrollment in MArch I program
06122 [M2]: Energy in Architecture (SCI 0612200)
Lecture - 2 credits
This course is a module. It lasts the second half of the semester only.
Friday 11:30 - 1:00 Gund 111
Monday 11:30 - 1:00 Gund - Piper
This lecture course introduces students to energy and environmental issues, particularly those that must be faced by the discipline of architecture. An overview of the basic principles of energy generation and energy use will be provided, and the fundamental climatic precursors and patterns will be discussed. Building design issues in relation to basic energy needs and interior environmental requirements will be briefly outlined, and students will be exposed to the underlying complexity of developing solutions that address a wide range of local and global concerns. In addition, the technological response to interior environmental control will be contextualized within the larger framework of the scientific and socio-cultural influences that shaped the building systems we currently use.
09304: Independent Thesis for the Degree Master in Design Studies (ADV 0930400)
Research Seminar - 8 credits
Martin Bechthold, Pierre Bélanger, Silvia Benedito, Neil Brenner, Timothy Hyde, Hanif Kara, Joyce Klein-Rosenthal, Ali Malkawi, Panagiotis Michalatos, Kiel Moe, Richard Peiser, Holly Samuelson, Allen Sayegh, Charles Waldheim, Andrew Witt, Leire Asensio Villoria, Ed Eigen
A student who selects this independent thesis for the degree Master in Design Studies pursues independent research of relevance to the selected course of study within the Master in Design Studies program, under the direction of a GSD faculty member. This option precludes taking any other independent study.
