Topic outline

  • Not available unless: You are a(n) Student


    Registration: SISU (priority for studio students and students of Urban Narratives I)
    Session: Periods III & V, Thursdays 9-12
    Teachers: Studio teachers and visitors.
    The course focus is on enabling the use of the moving image for describing existing or imaginary urban environments. The course can be taken as a supporting course for the Urban Design studio, for exploring the existing or possible future of our site and themes through the moving image.

    Course start 13.1. at 9:15 

    The course will focus around making a presentation that utilizes moving images in telling about an urban environment or phenomena. This can deal with the design the student is working on in her Studio, or some other location/issue - the goals of the assignment will be outlined by the student herself and discussed during the course. A set of lectures in the first spring period (period III) are meant to shed light on technical issues having to do with the moving image as a tool and a series of 'seminars' in the last period (period V) are used as 'mid-term reviews' or discussion sessions, where students can present their work and thinking in progress. The course finishes with presentations on the penultimate thursday of the semester (26.05.)

    Completing the course entails attending the lectures, participating in discussion and submitting an assignment at the end of the semester, as well as presenting the assignment for the group.
    The assignment will be given at the start of the course, during the first session (13.1.)
