This subject explores how the strategic incorporation of contextual and programmatic conditions can be used to affect the modes of inhabiting space. This exploration of context and program, occurring through the horizontal and vertical organisation of space, operates across a range of architectural and urban scales as a way to foster an understanding of the important disciplinary issues of hierarchy, proximity, enclosure, permeability and transparency.
The exploration of the relationships between context, program and spatial organisation occurs through maps and diagrams. Maps and diagrams are a valued disciplinary tool because they encourage an iterative design process based on reconfiguring extracted and abstracted spatial effects and affects. An important part of this process is the ability to return this extracted and abstracted information back into tectonic form. Consequently, the subject uses animated three-dimensional modes of representation to test, critique and develop a strategic organisation and re-materialisation of this spatial information.
