Master Lecture and Workshop
The chessboard of Louis Kahn
See the Results of 2016
The class is composed by different groups of students.
To the class is presented a possible "logic and rationale" approach through each, every individual will adehere to a building accordingly with their interest and level.
Each individual is free to create a group accordingly with the building he/she thinks is better suited.
Then we create different tables in which each key word is the guiding. Students worked in group maximum of 5 persons !
To each group is given a key building for each category.
1. The "interpretation" of the Existing Buiding
2. The implementation of that building in the "Kahn Chess Board"
3. The variation of the existing geometry .. the rules of variations
4. The possible IT transformation of the concepts!
