This afternoon I will participate in the final review session of the design studio on housing and urbanism Weathering Change: Miami of the Department of Architecture at Aalto University, led by Frances Hsu. The session will be held from 14.00 to 17.00 in the X wing of the main building (Otakaari 1).
Cities can be examined in many ways and across many disciplines. Multiple readings from diverse perspectives provide an array of interpretations that express varied narratives. There is no single story and method of documentation. This studio focuses on the physical and ephemeral borders, boundaries and margins between land and water, one of the most critical and complex shifts in environmental edge conditions, which hinge upon nonphysical sociological, political, psychological and economic forces that reinforce differences among diversified subcultures.
An exhibition of the works by students will be held at Otakaari 1X during July.
