Architecture 101 (part 1)
Architecture 101 is an introduction to space and architecture through 101 exercises. A six-month journey divided into 3 courses “online” on iversity (part 1, part 2 and part 3), one final exhibition / graduation party. If you are still alive after all of this daunting process, there will be a one-week workshop “offline”, where we will go one step beyond.

In short:

Part 1: From Nothingness to Place (Jan 5 to Feb 28)
Part 2: From Place to Space (Mar 2 to Apr 25)
Part 3: From Space to Architecture (Apr 27 to Jun 20)

Exhibition / Graduation at Abadir, in Sicily (Jun 19 to Jun 21, when we set up our fancy exhibition)
Workshop: Architecture 101 Summer Camp at Abadir, in Sicily (Jun 22 to Jun 26, when we build for real).

Architecture 101 part 1 deals with the process of shaping meaning. Articulate and complex meanings, defining relationships between mind and bodies, bodies and places. Little by little, we will encounter places and see the world taking shape.

To see places like architects do.
To understand the principles upon which we convert a place into a state of mind.
We will explore nothingness, void and negative space.
We will learn to name things, we will learn how to invent place (as we wrote before, when things have no name, they cannot exist).

We will learn to stare, observe and see.
We will learn a significative amount of extremely interesting (and totally useless) things.

All of the above refers to the conceptual part of our course.
Then, since we love having our students making practical things, you will also learn lots of technical things using a number of interesting digital applications.
