Ordinary Unfamiliarity: Foundation Pedagogy Through The Critique Of The Everyday, Kevin R. Klinger, Marc Swackhamer

Proceedings of the 18th National Conference on the Beginning Design Student

In our new foundation program, we proceed from two principles of instruction: first, we direct the focus of work away from conventional architectural topics and use analogy to awaken native critical insight; second, we postpone traditional "design" activity by strictly emphasizing observation skills and critical analysis. We delay design activity until the first quarter of the second year, in preparation for which we organize firstyear \tudio workshops around short iterative exercises that capitalize on the students' familiarity with the everyday world. We then structure these problems to render the everyday world in unfamiliar terms. This oscillation between the ordinary and ...

Assemblies: Full Scale Construction In The Freshman Design Sequence, Aron Temkin, Scott Smith

Proceedings of the 18th National Conference on the Beginning Design Student

The first year design faculty has been running a spring semester shop project for many years: Scott Smith has influenced this work as Shop Director since 1985. The examples documented in this paper are a cross section including two examples from the I980's and several more recent examples from the last ten years. The primary objective of this paper is to document the success and variety of this work and consider the factors impacting its variation, how the particulars of the assignment contribute more or less to the project objectives, and provide some background context for other scholars who ...

Manufacturers of architectural and interior products provide knowledge, but their information is often biased to serve their business objectives. Therefore, impartial information regarding new products is scarce. Students, particularly those new to the field, have the need to develop research skills, become acquainted with materials sources, and develop the ability to critically consider manufacturers' claims. Further, students benefit from interaction with the professionals they seek to emulate.Therefore, an architectural materials service learning project ...
