ARH 255 STUDIO 4 ASSEMBLY BUILDING & CONTEXT
Theaters are cultural institutions for collective story-telling. Design a theater by developing a critical viewpoint on the role of society, community, and culture. You will develop a design methodology through the analyses of the site as well as a cultural artifact. Iterative use of hand drawing, physical model-making, digital drawing will lead to a spatial composition.
