Fourth Semester Architecture Core: RELATE

The fourth and final semester of the architecture core sequence, this studio tackles the complexity of the urban condition through the design of housing. From individual to collective, from spatial to infrastructural, housing not only confronts the multiple scales of design but also exposes the values and ideals of its society. Using Boston as a laboratory, the semester will be an opportunity to imagine possible futures, recognizing the role of architecture at the intersection of the many interdependent as well as contradictory forces at play, and the negotiations that must necessarily take place.
