4.131B Architectural Design, Level II: Material and Tectonic Transformations: The Herreshoff Museum (MIT) 4.131B Architectural Design, Level II: Material and Tectonic Transformations: The Herreshoff Museum (MIT)

Description

This semester students are asked to transform the Hereshoff Museum in Bristol, Rhode Island, through processes of erasure and addition. Hereshoff Manufacturing was recognized as one of the premier builders of America's Cup racing boats between 1890's and 1930's. The studio, however, is about more than the program. It is about land, water, and wind and the search for expressing materially and tectonically the relationships between these principle conditions. That is, where the land is primarily about stasis (docking, anchoring and referencing our locus), water's fluidity holds the latent promise of movement and freedom. Movement is activated by wind, allowing for negotiating the relationship between water and land.

4.112 Architecture Design Fundamentals I: Nano-Machines (MIT)

Description

This is the second undergraduate architecture design studio, which introduces design logic and skills that enable design thinking, representation, and development. Through the lens of nano-scale machines, technologies, and phenomena, students are asked to explore techniques for describing form, space, and architecture. Exercises encourage various connotations of the "machine" and challenge students to translate conceptual strategies into more integrated design propositions through both digital and analog means.

Subjects

architecture | architectural design | nano-machine | programmable matter | drawing | scripting | casting | modeling | self-assembly | self-replication | Processing | generation | machine | space | scale | void | bounding box | system | habitation | architectural space

4.210 Precedents in Critical Practice (MIT)

Description

This course provides students with the opportunity to develop a map of contemporary architectural practice and discourse. The seminar examines six themes in terms of their recent history: city and global economy, urban plan and map of operations, program and performance, drawing and scripting, image and surface, and utopia and projection. Students will study buildings and read relevant texts in order to place recent architectural projects in disciplinary and cultural context.

Subjects

architectural criticism | manifesto | contemporary architecture | architectural practice | city | global economy | urban plan | map | drawing | scripting | utopia | program | performance | history

ESD.04J Frameworks and Models in Engineering Systems / Engineering System Design (MIT)

Description

This class provides an introduction to quantitative models and qualitative frameworks for studying complex engineering systems. Also taught is the art of abstracting a complex system into a model for purposes of analysis and design while dealing with complexity, emergent behavior, stochasticity, non-linearities and the requirements of many stakeholders with divergent objectives. The successful completion of the class requires a semester-long class project that deals with critical contemporary issues which require an integrative, interdisciplinary approach using the above models and frameworks.

Subjects

frameworks and models in engineering systems | quantitative models | qualitative frameworks | complex engineering systems | analysis and design | emergent behavior | stochasticity | non-linearities | architectural system configuration
