Guess what, the visitor from RGU has not had enough for that night that he insisted to give a discourse in Paradigm in Architecture at a touch and go basis as the days to come for which the localized Master Yodah quickly pick it up as a public lecture with posters everywhere. A sign that the event of a studio is now the event of the entire school and there is more to come.
Paradigm is and has been a popular topic among the 2nd year student back then for reasons that architecture as a subject shall constitute the category of Science or Arts and the debate often centralized on the doctrine of Scientific Inquiry against Artistic Feels. However the writings of Thomas S Kuhn in The Structure of Scientific Revolution, once and for all, put Science to its deathbed, thus the notion of paradigm becomes the signifier to a larger perspective of thesis and anti thesis of Ideas and Ideation.
Such paradigm shift that the studio had dwelt into has been considered the death of the authorin the generation of master planning not by a single individual against the backdrop of the urbanized scale massing model, we called URBANISMO, for which had caught the moderator representing as a practicing architect, by surprise, judging from a conventional viewpoint, that at this level, master planning has never become a sole work of an individual of a utopian sort, but as a collective efforts in a compromised and pragmatic ideal so consistent with the pretext of Jasper John’s drawing “Untitled (Skull) 1973” for which the art piece has been signed the conventional ways and yet “strike out” unconventionally to bring about the absenteeism of the author in person.
Along with this thought, the studios has undergone series of revision of the massing models, breaking of egos and finally comes to a sensible and compromised solutions, each correspond perfectly with the theme of the groups and the studio at large. With this exercise the question of form making has been eradicated for it the form of the buildings proposed are deeply rooted within the notion of the massing model to correspond with the given site context and consensus of the majority.
