Open only to and required of all participants in the B.Arch program. This course highlights the importance of fieldwork in Architecture. As a class, we will engage with various sites across the Italian territory, unpacking their layered history as it manifests in both material and immaterial cultures. On-site observations will be accompanied by representation experiments ranging from sketching, mapping, and many others. A portion of this course is also dedicated to specific investigations carried out with Design Studio instructors, focusing on specific design themes proposed in the semester.
