Design by words

Workshop on reading and writing with Fabrizio Gallanti and Marina Lathouri
In this intensive workshop, writing is considered as practice of thinking and a tool to communicate ideas in a clear and direct way, moving away from the complexities of architectural jargon and academic writing.

The objective is to introduce the students to formats and techniques of writing, with particular emphasis on the strategies to advance and develop ideas at an early stage of work. For such purpose, three readings are suggested, and three exercises (evaluated and discussed on a daily basis) will be developed over the course of a week, with early morning and late afternoons sessions (to guarantee time in between for the act of writing).

We have published some examples of the work produced by the MA HCT students in the 2014/15 and 2015/16 editions of the Design by Words workshop.
