House Analysis And Design


The House is the most fundamental of architectural programs. It is at the core of what it means to dwell. This semester will explore the house as a historical development by looking at modernist houses designed between 1910 and 1960. Through the analysis of these houses, the relationship between program, structure, space and context will be explored. Not only will the students dissect a house as an analytical process but will design and reconstruct the house in the contemporary context of Hong Kong. Whereas the fall semester was engaged in 1 to 1 investigations of the body, the spring will emphasize the issue of scale and the relationship between architectural ideas existing at different scales. Moving beyond the study of the body, the semester will emphasize the relationship between the body and architecture and architecture and the city.

The semester consists of three main projects: House Analysis, House Design and a Study Trip. Each project will be presented in photographs, diagrams, drawings and models and finally compiled together in the form of a book. The book format will be emphasized and explored as a method for communicating ideas.
