this plan was communally arranged & designed by the students

Our students started with their very own perceptions,


Andrea's memory of returning to her hometown in Mexico after being away for so long


zoe's imaginary childhood memory called

the bubbleland

and interpreted a locus both in the virtual and the physical sphere

Turner's Blender model

Then, these space-times were shuffled by a curriculum board game.

Via the game, students encountered their neighbors, 


engaged in spatial negotiations,

met their charactors,

and learned what it means to confront the imminent challenges of our built environment.

Student Works - Week 3

First digital translation after Blender & Rhino tutorials

After our students learned disciplinary knowledge via the boardgame paired with a set of tutorials, students curated their very own syllabus for the final projects.

Our students communally agreed on what they wanted to try for the finals, and they worked diligently in designing a small-scale exhibition/living space.

Center for
Mid-Western Arts & Culture

location - Yongsan Garrison (formally US Territory) in Seoul, South Korea
program - living space, communal space, and small exhibition space

For the last four weeks, students have been thinking in plan, section, and detail datums. It's not a lot of time, but our wonderful first-time architecture students did their best!

This is what our students have been up to so far, and we are not done yet!

That's why....

Our students will benefit from your feedback!
Please provide your insights for our students!
Comments will be shared with ARCH 201 class.
