VSA1003 Soft Architecture (FOART)


Semester 2 (ONC)Toowoomba


Units 1.0 (100301) Band 1


Synopsis

Soft Architecture is the art of spatial investigations and interventions and as a result this course discusses how interiority is a physical, virtual, perceptual, experimental space, negotiating between the natural and the artificial. Students in this class will be experimenting with materials as well as developing theory which will increase understanding of construction and how and why objects are built in a certain way. Students will develop work being presented in an essay, practical work involving design, objects and architectural models, drawings, books and tutorial answers. The overall aim of this course is for students to experiment with ideas and materials ant to develop an intuitive methodology of working which allows them to construct their own response to a definition of what space means historically as well as within their own personalised ideas.
