Late on this one, but wanted to do justice to a fine semester of Big and Tall, my seminar course in building history. Students take on one building or structure and, over the course of the semester while I’m lecturing, they analyze its balancing of assembly and performance, looking for clues to the designers’ intentions, constraints, and solutions. The final results are more and more digital these days, though students have the option still of building physical models. As you can see, though, building in pixel-space gives them the opportunity to explore the role of time and sequence, which allows more nuanced understanding of the construction processes.
