Project 1 is intended as a warm-up exercise to raise and frame questions about our own attitudes towards the idea of the city and how we represent them. It also enables a collaboration between first and second years Master of Architecture students.
Project 1 has three tasks Project 1A, 1B and 1C.
Project 1A is about identifying one key space in a city that we like and trying to identify the rules, standards, norms and codes that make it work and how these support or inhibit activities. The set of rules are represented through diagrams.
Project 1B is about producing a group model that represents our groups utopian vision of a space drawn from the rules developed in project 1A.
