Courses taught by Iñaki Abalos
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
01201: Third Semester Core: INTEGRATE (STU 0120100)
Core Studio - 8 credits
Tuesday Thursday 12:30 - 6:00
Integration is the agenda for the third semester architecture design studio. Architecture is fundamentally a part-to-whole problem, involving the complex integration of building components, systems and processes into a synthetic whole. Structural systems, envelope design, and environmental and thermodynamic processes will be systematically addressed in the development of a single project during the course of the whole semester. The building type consists of a multi-program urban building, requiring careful consideration of access and exchanges (circulatory, visual and energy), between programs. During that time students will work in consultation with engineers and scientists. Design exercises will be addressed through team and individual study. Prerequisites: GSD 1101 and GSD 1102, or advanced standing in the MArch I program.
09201: Independent Study by Candidates for Master's Degrees (ADV 0920100)
Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban Planning and Design
Independent Study - 0 credits

Students may take a maximum of 8 credit units with different instructors in this course series.Prerequisites: Graduate standing. Candidates may arrange individual work focusing on subjects or issues that are of interest to them but are not available through regularly offered course work. Students must submit an independent study petition and secure approval of the faculty member sponsoring the study.
09301: Independent Thesis in Satisfaction of Degree MArch (ADV 0930100)
Research Seminar - 12 credits
Iñaki Abalos, Leire Asensio Villoria, Jana Cephas, Danielle Etzler, Eric Howeler, Florian Idenburg, Panagiotis Michalatos, Ingeborg Rocker, Allen Sayegh, Mack Scogin, Jorge Silvetti, Maryann Thompson, Andrew Witt, Cameron Wu, Ed Eigen
Each student conducts a design exploration that tests and expands the thesis.
Prerequisites: completion of two (2) options studios and approval of thesis preparation documents by thesis advisor.
