Theme/Course of Semester : 적정기술과 건축설계 Appropriate Technology and Architectural Design
1. Course objectives
Appropriate Technology must be started purely from local conditions rather than given technical specifications, and be given back to local people to be seamlessly integrated into their routines. It also underlines the crucial importance of community involvement throughout design stages. By looking at previous design methodologies that were developed based on existing background, this course delivers a fresh and comprehensive one that covers surrounding issues and concepts to produce an appropriate technology based on the real meaning of technological appropriateness.
2. Course Description
This course is intended to provide students with the necessary understanding of appropriate technology. Toward this effort, the course is structured as lectures and part seminar. The second and third weeks of the course will be in a lecture format and the other 5 weeks will be in lecture on philosophy and theoritical base of appropriate technology with following presentation by student about the case of appropriate technology in architecture. In the last six weeks of the course, students will make his or her presentation on case of appropriate technology in each region.
3. Requirement & Grading
All students are required to attend all studio classes and complete all assignments on time. Any student who has more than three unexcused absences may be failed in the class. Whenever possible, discuss any necessary absences with instructor before you are absent or very shortly thereafter. Each student will submit digital file containing his or her presentation contents to the instructor by the last class. Failure to submit the digital files will affect the student's final grade. An incomplete grade will only be issued when a student is unable to complete the presentation because of a documented illness. A letter from your physician will be required documentation.
