The purpose of this studio was to investigate materiality in the scales of human habitation and to expand traditional notions of architecture through narrative-based design. Narrative-based design is the culmination of studies in the phenomenology of built forms and spatial constructions. It is an experience oriented, democratizing process rather than an image-based, hierarchical process. Using narrative-based design and research on theoretical stances of product manufacturing and interior design we created a domestic space that is an installation. We will built upon Lois Weinthall’s insights regarding the scalar difference between the body, interior design and architecture, and Anni Albers’ theory that the technology of craft should be revealed in the work especially in expressing the nature of the materials used.
