This exhibition features books produced by graduate architecture students for Design Thinking from 2010-2012. For this course, each student develops an independent, critical position on the making of architecture in the world—an individually initiated intentional, programmatic, and situational framework that serves as the basis for the self-directed Degree Project studio. With extensive data-gathering research in a chosen area of inquiry, the student develops an aspiring and compelling conceptual framework in book format. This project premise positions the student's intentions in a clear relationship to a contemporary architectural discourse. Site and program requirements are then developed to support the project's intentional basis.
Work for Design Thinking provides the foundation for the Degree Project studio, wherein each student is expected to initiate, and convincingly develop all aspects of, an architectural project—formal, spatial, experiential, organizational, structural, and technical—and create a clear, full, and persuasive presentation of her or his work.
