“Experience” has shown that “Experiment” is the main tool of human cognition. From Michelangelo to Le Corbusier, what has led to the most fundamental changes in architecture is an “Experimental” approach toward architecture which seeks to innovate in response to different design challenges. This workshop aims to look at the essence of architecture, which is the “design process”, with an “Experimental” approach.

ا      «تجربه» نشان داده است که «تجربه» اصلی‌ترین ابزار شناخت بشر است. از میکلانژ تا کوربوزیه، آنچه موجب بنیادی‌ترین تحولات در معماری شده، نگاهی «تجربی» به معماری است که در پی پاسخی بدیع به چالش‌های متفاوت طراحی است. این کارگاه در پی آن است با نگاهی مبتنی بر «تجربه» به جوهرة معماری که «فرایند طراحی»ست بپردازد. به همین منظور، در این دوره ابتدا با ارائة مبانی نظری، بخشی از مواضع تئوری طرح می‌گردد و پس از طریق چهار روز فرایند کارگاهی به «تجربه» معماری می‌پردازیم. اگرچه در انتها محصول طراحی، یک پروژه معماری تجربه‌گراست اما اصلی‌ترین نتیجة دوره، «تجربه»‌ایست که خود شرکت‌کنندگان از حضور در «فرایند طراحی» کسب می‌کنند.       ا
