This class is for those people who are interested in learning the basics of architecture and urban design. It is an introduction to basic theoretical and practical tools of spatial operation in different scales as well as architectural representation techniques. It will show the students broad, abstract form-making procedures and elements down to the specificity of the urban context. The class is structured in two sessions consisting of 2 hours each: The first one covers brief and diverse lectures (think tank) and the second is a workshop (do-tank). The aim is that at the end of the two session class, students will have a better understanding of basic elements of architecture and urban design, and will be equipped with a set of introductory tools to operate in space
