Construction Systems

This course introduces students to construction systems with the ambition to shape the perception of a designer’s agency in relationship to them. An overview of construction systems will be provided including an overview of wall, roof, envelope, and foundation systems. Students will discover construction systems through lectures and by applying methods of dissection, drawing, and fabrication of selected systems. Construction systems are further defined when they are formed through regimes of governance, labor, logistics, energy, carbon, geology, tools, and time.
