E880: Building the Space Age in Splash! Spring 2010
The image of the future would have hi-fi sci-fi buildings in interesting shapes, and lots of sky and less ground - Jetsons style. So what would, really, architecture for the future hold? How much of the fantasy can be reality. Is it super-sustainability, new materials, new collaborations, new technology and perhaps some lessons from history? The class will feature an 45 minutes of architectural background, followed by 45 minutes of creative team work. followed by 30 mins of group discussion. Bring your ideas to class and work in teams to dream up a checklist of everything the future of buildings can hold!
