Course Description
Nature has shaped the understandings on architecture as a theoretical ground, a discursive foundation, a rich source of raw materials and information, a fragile shelter, as well as a continuous threat. Views on nature are both diverse and subject to transformations in time. This course examines the varying roles that nature assumes in the understanding and conducting of architecture, in terms of both historical and practical aspects. Participants explore various interactions between nature and architectural understandings and practices through both theoretical studies and design applications.
