This studio analyzes canonical houses of modernity to learn from the history in a dialogue with it through text, drawing, and model. Students decipher as much as represent, through which their personal agencies crystalize into a critical reading of the precedent building.
The journeys commenced with themes. In 2020, the studio was organized around "Door", the grammatic threshold between spaces in the house. In 2021, the studio focused on "Mirror", the oppositions that a house accommodates.
