SE Advanced Architectural Theory: OUT OF SCALE / Eleni Boutsika Palles

10 9th, 2020

In this seminar we will engage with architectural and artistic projects that reframe our perceptions of the environments we inhabit using scale shifts. With a special focus on the translation of theoretical concepts into spatial probes, we will look into examples from art and architecture where familiar objects or actions are displaced from their original contexts by juxtaposing, multiplying or combining them with others, in order to develop a figurative description about the making, practice or experience of architecture.

The course will include two lectures, our meetings will be held as roundtable discussions (physical or online to be decided) and at the end of the semester the students are asked to hold a short presentation on the topic of their choice.
