The studio will emphasize critical thinking on basic architectural issues through the design proposal of a group of three houses and three workspaces (painting, writing, and music composing) for three very different families that will be sharing a single undivided lot in the east side of the city of Buffalo. 

The design of these domestic spaces will take the student to explore issues of precedents, program, geometry, site, scale, materiality, perception, landscape, adjacency, circulation, order, and context, among others, constructing an intense introductory Studio experience to their Graduate program in the City of Good Neighbors.
