A manual that conveys the fundamentals of architectonic design while also providing a novel didactic approach to the presentation of course material: classical design strategies and design conventions are questioned, and unlike conventional textbooks, the individual design steps, from the initial idea to the practical realization of the design, are illustrated by student projects.
In addition to the orientation provided within the individual chapters, a graphic navigational structure guides readers through the book as a whole and enables them to scan and home in on individual projects. On analogy with the semesters of an academic year, the book is divided into two main sections, devoted to the thematic areas space, program, technology, context, and form. Each chapter focuses in on a single aspect of architectonic design. Thus, the overall approach is explained step by step.
From the Back Cover: DEVIATIONS, a handbook and users’ guide on architectural design pedagogy, pursues the strategy of the Trojan horse, infiltrating a given system’s practices in order to transform them from within. While documenting the opening moves of the architectural design curriculum at the ETH Zurich, the manual exposes teaching to a series of tests. It promotes a departure from the seemingly familiar and stable grounds of recognized design approaches in pursuit of more open tactics – initiating a plea for a new type of architectural practice. Rather than opposing the established order of things, the approach embraces this order while simultaneously working both with and against manufactured conventions. Taking on the operative mechanisms of everyday practice, median standards, and normative action as the very stuff of design, concepts and techniques emerge whose foci are not based on form, but on how architecture might perform. In addition to the orientation provided within the individual chapters, a graphic navigational structure guides readers through the book as a whole and enables them to scan through the work or focus on specific projects. Following the framework of an academic year, the book is divided into a series of sections devoted to the thematic areas: space, program, technology, context and form. Marc Angélil and Dirk Hebel have taught architectural design at several universities in Europe and the United States. Over the last few years, they have been collaboratively engaged in a didactic experiment reframing the introductory design course at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich.
