3. Course contents *

By visiting and studying actual built habitats, students research habitation and architectural habitats beyond the self-evidence of their personal dwelling. They study -analytically and phenomenologically-  the complex and diverse relations between habitation, dwelling space, and its environment. The case-study’s are framed by and complemented with a more theoretical and architecture-historical research.  Students learn to communicate the research methods and results through language and visual imagery.
