  • Overview

    In most cases nowadays, one cannot simply go out and start building. Things must be planned, consents sought, materials organised. The overall architectural project will take time, and will move through a series of modes, and a series of technological, regulatory and economic inputs. The module offers a critique of this parts-based approach, which, it seems, interferes with and determines our capacity to generate spatial, or pictorial, order through a greater understanding of visual world as operated upon by artists, with a particular focus on their means of engagement.

Course Disclaimer

Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.

Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.

ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.

Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.

Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
