Abstract

Given its proximity to the human body, the furniture scale holds a particular potential in grasping the fundamental aesthetic potential of architecture to address its inhabitants by means of spatial ‘gestures’. Likewise, it holds a technical germ in realizing this potential given its immediate tangibility allowing experimentation with the ‘principles’ of architectural construction. In present paper we explore this dual tectonic potential of the furniture scale as an epistemological foundation
in architectural education. In this matter, we discuss the conduct of a master-level course where we utilize this potential pedagogically to achieve a critical bridging of architectural theory and practice.
