Patrick Macasaet will be teaching a design elective at RMIT Architecture to both Masters and Bachelor Program, Semester 2.  This elective is a continuation of an ongoing research and interest in Typological Contaminations/Shift through the lens of Process Based design experiments.

OPEN LABORATORY OF TYPOLOGICAL EXPERIMENTS

This design elective will be an open laboratory of typological experimentations looking at how contaminations of ‘other’ typologies can assist in re-inventing core architectural elements (form, circulation, function, etc.) to affect other types.  It will view types as pliant, abstract, mutative and adaptable.  It will analyse, question, and investigate existing types (small, medium, large) through drawings, diagrams and readings and ask “what else”, “what if” and “how” to produce speculative typological prototypes and ideas.

PROCESS BASED EXPERIMENTS

In conjunction with types; the elective will understand and choreograph process-based experiments as a catalyst for discovering and opening up new possibilities.  It will look at starting points, choreographing steps, filtering output and manipulating the process to generate a series of architectural propositions that may materialize in various ways: programmatic adjacencies, spatial arrangements, ornamental studies, material investigation, models, drawings, diagrams, collages.

CATALOGUE OF CONTAMINATED TYPES

Collectively and collaboratively, the design elective will produce a catalogue of contaminated types.

This will exhibit individual students’ curated works on typological analyses, process experiments (failures and triumphs), and big idea speculations.
