SUPERWORK

Tags | , , , , , ,

Patrick Macasaet will be teaching at RMIT Architecture for the Bachelor Program 2016, Semester 1.  Part of the SUPER series that explores process based experiments and contaminating typologies, SUPERWORK will be the third iteration continuing from past design studios led with Helen Duong, SUPERNORMAL 1 and SUPERNORMAL 2.

INVESTIGATION 1: Rule-Based Process Experiments + Contaminating Types
The studio will be a workshop of typological experiments looking at how contaminations of ‘other’ typologies can assist in re-imagining core architectural elements (form, circulation, program, spatial arrangement, ornament, etc.) to generate new propositions or new prototypical models for the contemporary working environment.

Rule-based process experiments will be deployed to assist in manipulating, distorting, amplifying, shattering, dispersing, [insert action here] the behaviours and qualities of existing types to affect the architectural elements of the office typology. The studio will not only be interested in a process based approach but more so, what could be generated in terms of architectural propositions in this specific way of working.

INVESTIGATION 2 : Vertical Corporate Campus + Experimental Work Environment

The vertical corporate campus is an emerging typology for urban development. Largely built in suburban areas where land is cheaper and larger, corporate campuses and business parks do little for social cohesion; and the self-contained suburban work environment is being challenged as new work models and the rise of a new generation of workers are seeking alternative ways of working. The studio will explore the changing nature of work, its continued evolution and contribution to our cities.

Patrick Macasaet will also be teaching in the First Year program as a Design Studio Leader and Communications Leader for the Pavlova Stream.
