Eligibility:

In order to be eligible for a first cycle course the applicant needs to fulfil the general and specific entry requirements of the programme(s) that has the course included in the study programme.

Course specific prerequisites

ARK491 Artistic exploration or corresponding.

Aim

The aim of the course is to:
- develop knowledge about matter and space, species and distinctions
- develop an ability in a design process to be inspired of the interplay between matter and space
- deepen an artistic attitude where projects are guided through experiments in combination with analysis, association, searching and opposite approaches

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

- Identify and characterize/describe architectural qualities like the space and shape, movement and direction, dimensions of a surface, and experienced qualities related to the light (color), heat and sound, force and balance, air and water, etc.
- By use of examples show how a project can be developed through analytical sketching, construction of concept models, and an artistic approach.
- Demonstrate skill and precision in execution and presentation of a task.
- Describe and explain an artistic process

Content

Examples of themes: Space and structure. Form and balance. Form and force pattern. Space and material. Space and light. Space and heat. Space and sound. Space and air. Space and water. Space and movement.

Organisation

The course is structured around a series of workshops in which various aspects of the design of architectural space and structure are examined. Central to these training workshops is to develop a project through analytical sketching, construction of concept models and an artistic approach. The course supports and develops the architectural design projects of the education.

Literature

Will be announced at the beginnig of the course.

Examination including compulsory elements

For pass requires, close to 100% presence, active participation in excersises/laborations, approved tasks, and approved Portfolio presentation.
