Maria Fullaondo, Joseph Gauci-Seddon

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


This essay aims to unpack a specific pedagogical methodology and design strategies facilitating and increasing the range of possibilities to deal with the creation of an architectural project. Considering the architect as an inventor of relations, this project focuses on creative and persuasive strategies that break the logics of discourse to the point of transformation, searching for unpredictable relations between concept, content, and context. The ultimate goal involves increasing the range of creative possibilities so students will approach their projects with more confidence and articulated awareness of the alternatives and systems that architects use.
