HOUSE/HOME
WEEK ASSIGNMENT 16 SEPTEMBER 2011, KTH

In this assignment you will work in groups and research new/alternative building materials and put the information together in a presentation. This means that we will have a large archive of knowledge that you can use later in your own individual projects. – Each group has to find 10-15 possible building materials and show how these are meant to be used. – Each group also has to make a field study of a contemporary housing project and suggest how the use of an alternative construction/material could produce additional architectural qualities. Relate this investigation to your own interests and think especially on the following questions: What relation has it to the field of architecture? If used as the basis for architectural conceptualization what kind of architecture does it/could it produce? What aesthetics are produced?
