The goal of this brief is to give students the ability to express their ideas formally. This means that someone should learn the formal bases by which the discipline of architecture and urbanism organises its material organisation like buildings or cities. Secondary all exercise should led towards forms of representation of their formal exercise (plan, section, axonometric, etc…). Two achievements should be maid: to deal with single objects based on formal strategies of mass and voids to produce figures, and multiplication or proliferation of mass and voids to form fields.

The course will consist of a series of formal exercise. The intention of these exercises is to address the formal principle of architecture expressed by different disciplinary problems like: figure / ground and part to whole relations.

Exercises 1
Studies of figure / ground, solid / void, surface / volume

Exercises 2
part to whole relations:
consider a point out of points / lines / surfaces / volumes
consider a line out of points / lines / surfaces / volumes
consider a surface out of points / lines / surfaces / volumes
consider a volume out of points / lines / surfaces / volumes 

Exercise 3
Developing a final model on the basis of the previous exercise.
The outcome of the courses will be presented in an exhibition as 1:1 scale models.

The applied Methodology for this Teaching course is the psychological theory of the Gestalt. This theory was re-originated in many other disciplines and defines primarily the relationship between figure and their ground. Within architecture this figure ground methodology is the bases for any formal approach within architecture and urbanism.

Course examination according to § 7, statute section on "study-law regulations"
