Our project is a specialized architectural campus and thinking lab which deals with architecture in its unbuilt form. Our goal is to provide students with an overview of the experience-based design process, while simultaneously encouraging students to develop a specific research trajectory within the field because we had started out from the base that showed out” modern architecture are selling style but not architecture” so that was the sparkle goal in our intentions in this project.
we are mainly working on students of architecture who are the basic bricks in our architectural world with a connection to the qualified architects in the field and the public by the real experience they live in it, so we can diminish the gap between the society and the architectural world. One of our main intentions is to turn dozens of ideas into initial representations and models through process of mental representation that slowly turns into real plan which leads the students of architecture into mental journey that finishes up building their experiential designs.
our project will be a container of process and the design will be the final product of the process relationships which serves two main types of designers: internal designers who will follow all our process, and external designers who will cut out our process from one of the processes and that’s why we want to check up units as an entrance to them which makes sure they pass all the previous phases successfully, and it will be our base reference for the externals which has an elite from designers and experts in the field who help the internal and external designers to check their process when it is needed.
This project will mainly cope with the design itself, not the designer, so any design which will be produced in our project must follow our process, so as a final product it will be an experience based design.
check up units will be the condition for entering the process space by the external designers so it will deal with the product of every space as an input value to the project , and we can sum up all checking processes in one physical space but here we are dealing with system processes more than real processes which are reflected by circulation, we can’t control all the processes that happen in the project but we can control the processes located on the site.
As thousands of users visiting the site are constantly reflecting different cultural backgrounds, it enables us to cope with different perspectives, experimenting the project products. we want the products to be as a focusing view point overlooked by the site to make sure that the observation units are having the full control on it. one of the main concerns on the site is the public access to the product’s show area which is one of the main parts in the project that allows the public to easily move in it.
