IMMERSION – Vermont (Rick Joy, Tom Kundig, Marlon Blackwell)
The format for the course will be an mixture of tours, site visits, studio work, lectures and critique. Students and tutors will live and work (including sleeping, meeting, and eating) on-site for the week.
Over the course of the week, students will work to develop a response to an architectural problem. Significant time will be spent exploring, drawing, and developing an understanding of the context for the project. Response will be developed in model and graphic form, with an emphasis on analog representation methods. The week will culminate in a formal presentation and critique of the work.
This year’s studio will be held at the Woodstock Farm House and Barn by Rick Joy Architects in Wooodstock, Vermont. The project was selected by Architectural Record for its 2010 Record Houses Issue, and has been featured in numerous other publications.
The house is sited at the base of a hill next to a spring-fed pond which forms the center of family activity on the 210-acre homestead. Woodstock displays so much of what makes this part of New England unique, with the rollling hills and everchanging forest backdrop serving as a constant marker of place and time. This will be our laboratory and canvas for the workshop.
The program will be led by Immersion staff and three award winning architects: Rick Joy, Tom Kundig, and Marlon Blackwell.
