We are interested in all aspects of making exceptional architecture. This elective, first in an ongoing series, examines in detail (and details) the devices, components, material matters and spaces that give character to our built environment and public institutions. The stair is key in the experience of most museums, and the accompanying circulation route, gives character, function and identity to these institutions. Drawing on Smart Design Studio’s ongoing research into museums, art galleries and novel construction methods this elective examines, speculates and tests, through rigorous detail drawings and scale models, the possibilities of this typology.
