Teaching a thorough, repeatable design process for ambiances in architecture
College of Architecture, Design and Management, Wentworth Institute of Technology, USA
Le Corbusier, it has been said, defined architecture as "the poetry of construction" and as such, the term "ambiances" is reminiscent of those great words. In order to create that special quality, that poetry, that ambiance in architecture, a design concept that is the result of a thorough, repeatable design process must be employed. The purpose of this paper/presentation is to explain the design thinking/design tools we need to teach our students, i.e. the future Le Corbusiers of the world, how to create those special qualities that make ambiances/poetry in architecture possible.
