ARCH 5612 - Research Methods II
Undertakes a historical survey of the dominant theoretical rubrics designers have used to integrate scientific concepts into architectural research since the Enlightenment. The course is divided into two parts. The first half exposes students to the range of conceptual strategies and techniques architects have used to translate scientific concepts into architectural form, from direct experimentation of structural principles to analogical and metaphorical models of procedural design strategies. The second half requires students to develop a working thesis statement of their independent research that places their work within one of the historical traditions reviewed in class.
