The module involves working out and implementing a solution for a task, idea or functional principle of relative simplicity, either individu-ally chosen or set. This involves the definition of formal parameters, the development and critical evaluation of alternative paths to a solution, and the making of rationally arguable decisions. The result is presented and discussed in a colloquium.
The study is conceived as a minor project that will accompany the degree program, providing continuous opportunity for additional work on developing ideas or putting the content of theoretical seminars into practice. It will not be subjected to the rigorous criteria of a draft design, as it comprises only the final phase – formal concept and execution – of a complete draft. It is expected that the complexity of the study will grow in the course of the degree program. Topics are agreed individually.
The goals of the study are:
- evaluation and realization of students’ individual ideas
- identification of form-determining parameters
- development and evaluation of alternative solutions
- objective reasoning of decisions
- development of drafting competencies
- training in manual model-building
