89141 Perception Space Materials: Research and Conceptualisation




This is the first subject in the Perception Space Materials major. This subject is based on a series of cognitive week-by-week research and conceptual projects to develop material thinking towards an innovative spatial practice. Through the studio environment, projects will be aimed at forwarding individual perceptions to the analysis of site in developing site-responsive programs. Design will be investigated through spatial experiencing and programing, function and occupation, surface and texture. Over the course of the three sessions, participants in this major will explore the conceptualisation of design and practice and associated visual techniques including: 2D & 3D spatial constructions, filmic, diagrammatic and schematic mappings: creating a matrix of design potentials feeding into the major project and final dissertation.
