Reviewer Experience in Virtual Design Studio Through Blogs


We aim to present a new experience in the field of education in the design studio, essential component in the architects' training. The design studio of the New York City College of Technology in the class of the first two authors opened up in 2012 for international reviews. For Argument 7/2015 we presented such a project, focusing on the architecture programme. Now we will focus on the educational experience, presenting all the projects reviewed so far by the third author at the "Advanced Design" studio, namely:

Delon Lawrence - Theatre/cultural centre (spring 2012/23) - unfinished

William Calderon - Brewery with restaurant (fall 2013/14)

Grace Dubon - Hotel with spa (spring 2013/14)

Claudia Tupayachi - Music school (fall 2014/15)

Jose Zephurine - Media library (spring 2014/2015)

The analysis will be based on the way in which computer assisted instruction can be adapted to teaching-learning-evaluating in the design studio. Comparisons will be performed with other innitiatives in the field, discussing hereby the Open Educational Ressources, and with the traditional design studio. The pedagogical concept will be explained (competences, contents). The contribution of the approach including this presentation to virtual mobility in frame of education compared to the one in research will be discussed.
