ASSIGNMENT ONE

"To better understand architecture’s expanded field as a multi-scalar system of entangled material conditions, each student will write a “lesson” for an object. Taking our cue from Ian Bogost’s Object Lessons series, write a creative, analytic text about an object. It may be a work of high design, an everyday artifact, an overlooked device, a node in a chain of historical events, a crucial tool, an exemplary case, a generic model, or an epic mistake. Its significance is appreciated simultaneously from 35,000 feet and with a magnifying glass, which is to say, it is best appreciated in the curious relationships between its material qualities, its aesthetic appearance, its social meaningfulness, and the vicissitudes of its histories (which are always plural)."
