COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY GSAPP : THE ART OF POETIC ENVIRONMENTAL ARCHITECTURE
This studio is an experimental spatial course aimed to design poetic architectural public structures that stimulate environmental awareness through perceptual and environmental sensations. This course was designed to question what architecture is and how it can be considered through silence and decay. Silence meaning “to observe” and decay meaning “to transform”. Based on the current state of our climatic and geological weather conditions, this experimental course examined new ways of understanding the role of the architect, and spatial poetics that rethink our environmental relationships. The aim was to expand the mental ecology in relation to environmental poetics and conceptual or symbolic design, while questioning the importance of this as a collective. This was achieved by designing living ecosystems, and spaces of environmental contemplation in our public, and private spaces which act as architectural meeting places for human and non-human inhabitants.
