Bonn presented in SKYPE his lecture input on “Problem-Seeking” addressing the need for an Architectural Programming. It was very informative and worthwhile. The photo shows the SKYPE presentation in progress.
Then I presented in SITU, a lecture input on “Introduction to Design Thesis : Different Design Approaches” reviewing and describing particular projects from previous years that either placed emphasis on the Building Type; Sustainable Science; Issue-driven and Community Architecture.
There was a lot of inquiry on site selections and whether one should have a site. So the argument is, even if you have a floating city or space ship, you need to dock it somewhere.
Next comes the presentation on the 2 design thesis proposals to be summarised in 5 minutes. The students seem to be up for it. Hopefully they can sustain the enthusiasm and welcome the challenge.
