In our project “Are We Human(e)?”, in addition to the questions of the curators, the students are to elaborate on the established conceptions of space and place questioning humaneness of both the designer and of the user. The projects will be selected from the outcomes of the warm-up projects of the Architectural Design Studios at all levels of the department. The design problem involves creation of quality design within varying problems of context, content and concept. The students are expected to overview and reflect upon the technical, environmental, cultural and temporal levels of design. The complexity of the designs and the presentation products of the projects will differ according to the requirements of the level of the studio.
