From Idea to Architecture – The First House
In Projects 2, second year students are exposed to architecture by translating visual references, thoughts, intuition and briefs into a project that is achieved through accumulating, processing, re-drawing, re-enacting spaces, events and objects through drawings as well as sketching buildings by removing possible irrelevancies. Whose outcome is a recomposition of idiosyncratic architectures, types and characters.
This year, the students’ portfolios disclose their own ways of looking, thinking, telling and putting forward positions and projects of architecture in a spirit that is open and daringly vulnerable. In order to exemplify this, we have brought to you two extraordinary projects: Anna Mirapeix’s First House and Ines Ladera’s First House.
