École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, CH
2019 - 2020
as part of Studio Jo Tallieu


Programme:

3 weeks
4 sessions + 1 review
17 participating students (Ba3 / Ba4)


Brief:

Students are tasked to design an architectural intervention within an existing office building. The intervention focuses on, yet is not limited to, a new means of vertical travel within the existing construction.

Through the introduction of a new digital skillset, students are then tasked to digitally represent their intervention. The students are encouraged to not only draw not only staircase design, but to emphasize the architectural promenade they wish their visitors to experience, as well.

Due to the covid-19 pandemic this class was unfortunately cut short.


Requirements:

One DIN A1 (841 x 594 mm) poster, portrait. Poster showcases staircase design and architectural promenade concept.

as part of Studio Jo Tallieu


Programme:

5 weeks
5 sessions + 1 review
30 participating students (Ba3 / Ba4)


Brief:

During the winter semester, students are asked to document one room within an existing building by a renowned architect, previously assigned to them. By doind so, they learn a new set of digital skills and learn how to correctly document architectural spatiality on paper.

During the summer semester, students are asked to document one room within the building they have designed themselves, inspired by the existing building previously assigned to them. Students implement their newly acquired digital skillset by visualizing their room in a highly detailed manner.

During the final presentation, students present both rooms side by side, showcasing their abilities to analyze and design an architectural space on paper.


Requirements:

Two DIN A2 (594 x 420 mm) posters, landscape Black and white line-drawing only. Each drawing depicts a single room from a single, frontal point of view.

Guest teacher

Class in experimental architectural design
École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, CH
2017 - 2018
as part of Studio architecten De Vylder Vinck Taillieu 


Programme:

12 weeks
8 sessions + 2 reviews
30 participating students (Ba3 / Ba4)


Brief:

Students are asked to produce a sequence of 6 images, connected by either visual ar textual fragments. This sequence should be able to be read in a certain order, and be able to communicate a message of spatiality (chosen by the student) to the observer.

More importantly, the message should help the observer to understand the student’s architectural identity; who they are and what they stand for within the world of architectural design.

Students are asked to write a single sentence to accompany their image sequence, granting them a chance to further elaborate on their visuals.


Requirements:

One DIN A1 (841 x 594 mm) poster, portrait. Poster showcases a sequence of 6 square images and a written sentence.

Guest teacher

Class in experimental architectural design
École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, CH

as part of Studio architecten De Vylder Vinck Taillieu


Programme:

15 weeks
7 sessions + 2 reviews
13 participating students (Ba3 / Ba4)


Brief:

Students are tasked to translate intangible aspects from their design process (such as ‘feel’, ‘mood’, and ‘atmosphere’) into an architectural folie; an architectural construction with no specific programme besides defining the border between inside and outside space.

The studio introduces students to both a new digital skillset and the medium of an architectural folie hoping to stimulate them in further defining their architectural identity. Students are encouraged to work from detail to whole, generating an understanding of ‘detail’, ‘material’, and ‘construction’.


Requirements:

One DIN A1 (841 x 594 mm) poster, portrait. Poster showcases the designed folie. Design, construction, choice of materials, attention to detail and overall visual style is taken into account during review of the A1 posters.
