Topics in Contemporary Architecture & Urbanism: Model Behavior

ARC 560

Info tab content
The term "model behavior" is often used to describe good social skills. This seminar turns that concept on its head to investigate how models themselves behave. Conceptual models, study models, section models, and presentation models are givens in architecture, but their role in projecting or inducing social behavior is seldom considered. As models in other disciplines - such as climate change and economic models - clearly affect social behavior, how do architectural models change social behaviors? This course explores the symbolism and potential of the architectural model and its relationships to the myriad models that shape behaviors today.
