The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture
Memory Practice - ARC 520G Intermediate Design Studio IV
This studio explored the consequences of personal and cultural memory in architectural production. All the varieties of inhabitation and its experience are touched by memory; whether projecting a remembered past on an idealized future, enlisting historic fabric to legitimize new construction or simply a preferring the familiar over the strange. Memory practice: the act of interpreting and using history, nostalgia, ideas of utopia, mythology and futurism; is present in all architecture we think and make - intentional or not. Below are samples of student work from the three main assignments.
1 ) precedent: extraction, combination
parti analysis models
2 ) design: memory shelter
3) design: residential treatment center
