The first part of the seminar will deal with photography not as a tool for representation but rather as a tool in the architectural design process.
At the very beginning of my architectural studies, I was told: The architect never builds 100% of his/her idea. If 75% is built, he/she is a lucky architect. This fairly frustrating acknowledgement raised a question of what stayed unbuilt. If we do the project for the reconstruction of a building, is it our job to reconstruct what was not built?
Each of you will choose a building and do your research on it. You’ll try to recognize the context in which the building was made and to understand the reasons why some parts of the building were never built.
Finally using photography as a tool in architectural design, you’ll do your own reconstruction project.
