Move Space Studio Project
The Move Space project explores space and materials inspired by human movement and dance to design a pavilion for a university site.
The first-year studio is likely to be a new experience for every student. The studio emphasises exploring architecture by doing. It is no exaggeration to say that doing architecture involves imagination. Still, it is also a very hands-on discipline involving making models, filling sketchbooks full of drawings, and getting out and about on study trips and site visits, where being inquisitive is essential to find out more and more about what architecture might mean to you. You may wonder what we mean when we say studio? A studio is a course unit engaging with a professional context, a body of architecture practitioners and academics, and a place where students can explore architecture through design projects with the support of tutors. We have two-course units dedicated to studio projects, where students can experiment in design involving drawing, modelmaking, and visualisation to explore ideas and concepts. One-on-one tutorials and small group activities support the development of each student's projects to test out architectural design possibilities.
