Architectural Design Studio 7 (ARCH 580): Fall 2015: Design work in a first-year Master of Architecture studio
Architectural Design Studio 7 (ARCH 580): Fall 2015: Design work in a first-year Master of Architecture studio

 Taught by Professor Jeff Schnabel, this first-year Master of Architecture course involves advanced Investigations of architectural and urban design issues in concluding series of studios. Projects include the design of private and public buildings which require comprehensive, integrative design development, includes individual criticism, lectures and seminars. This is the first course in a sequence of three: Arch 580, Arch 581, and Arch 582, which must be taken in sequence. 

 

This studio investigates how human activities in Portland intersect with darkness. A significant portion of our waking hours are spent in darkness, however architects rarely design projects for darkness.  Students explore graphic ways to describe the built environment at night through research and mapping the historical, cultural and experiential qualities of human inhabitation between the sunset and sunrise. Based on their research, students select a site for and design a Museum for Nocturne Painting, a museum operating only at night.
