We will spend five days together, discovering each-other’s daily rituals, routines, and patterns of living. You will undertake a critical investigation of your own daily routines in an architectural context through walking, looking, drawing and making.
You will learn new ways of recording your observations and ideas through sketching, drawing, photography, collage, film, model-making and writing. We will navigate the Summer School through a series of lectures, podcasts, readings, demonstrations and hands-on tasks.
Our daily ‘patterns of living’ help us to stay productive, and in the uncertain global pandemic they are perhaps the only things which we can rely on. Throughout the Summer School, we will question how architecture plays host to our ‘patterns of living’ and we will develop an understanding of scale through the close observation of real-life scenarios. Together and individually, we will reflect on your daily observations and imaginations. We will learn about architectural drawing conventions such as plan, section and elevation. We will discuss university applications, personal statements, portfolios and interviews.
All work produced in the Summer School can be used in your portfolios when applying to university.
