Studio Description

how tall are you ?

His hand, resting softly on her head, her back against the wall, resisting the urge to stand taller on toes. Grown.

The doorframe, measuring us. Marking height, time, place, date.
A year of growth, a different pencil, pen, marker.
We mark walls, homes, places.
We mark maps, clothes, our bodies.
We mark ourselves, our parents, our friends.

The same line, the same year, the same doorframe.
Drawn over and over and over. One line, resting upon another.

Studio Outcomes

nothing would ever be the same again, is the next in a series of studios that look at beautiful Palestine. Over the course of our shared summer, we will explore the land, the places, the people of Palestine. We will look to maps, to stories, to film, to words, to food, to each other to learn from a place that has so much to share, and from which, we have so much to gain.

The studio asks for rigorous, thoughtful, and self-directed research. You will have high expectations placed upon you, but with this comes care, attention, support, and a space where you can develop your thoughts about architecture. The studio relies on class discussion, requiring you to listen to your classmates, to guests, to develop opinions, critiques, yourself.

Throughout the semester you will be required to design a piece of architecture. The brief will be a sketch that you will have to complete. You will need to ask a lot of questions, listen carefully, and respond with kindness. You will want to talk about Palestine to anyone who will give you a moment to speak.

Studio Leader

Schedule Mondays, Thursdays 10:00-16:00 in MSD Room 141 and Online (BSL)
