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

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.
