A46 ARCH 531CProgrammatic Choreographies1.5 Units
Description:A seminar exploring multiple venues to understand the program of a building as a strategy for design which operates in support of place, context, circumstance, environment, and form, etc. The formulation of programmatic strategies will be based by critically using conventional "programs," but understood not as a list of room names, but rather as scenarios of human action based on protocols of use, choreographies of movement, alternatives for gathering, and their subsequent required area of occupation. Each of these scenarios will be explored as opportunities to expand the possibilities of the inhabitation of space in order to enhance the experience of architecture. As such, Program is understood as a powerful instrument of inquiry and pre-design which can make effective transitions into calibrated design operations. The course will include lectures and exercises where each of these scenarios will be presented, discussed and given as tests of analytical and strategic propositions. The deliverables will be shown as power point presentations to test the student's ability to communicate effectively through verbal, graphic and written information. Each of the exercises will be printed at the end of the course as the final deliverable. There will be readings (limited) in support the class discussions. Students enrolled in Design Thinking are encouraged to register for this seminar since it will provide important support to Design Thinking requirements.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
