SOCIO-SPATIAL CONSTRUCTION OF POLITICAL SPACE

BUILDING A POLITICAL ARGUMENT
After intensively working throughout the term on understanding the relationship between politics and space students will be asked to define their own design proposals. They should combine previous socio-cultural, spatial and material investigations and analysis. Plans, Sections, Elevations and sketch models are expected for the End of the Term Jury. After the end of the term Jury there would be an assessment of the work done. Parts of the design not developed during the Term should be completed in the Christmas break.
