Reviewing the successive cognitive, operative and constructive models of architectural morphogenesis through time, the paper first recalls students and teachers in architecture how designers started experimenting digital design to reach self-generative, morphogenetic morphologies. Generally referred to as “non-standard architecture”, this innovative morphogenesis favours a new kind of spatial and architectural audacity but also generates three types of rupture: i) a rupture between form and structure; ii) a rupture in terms of process continuity and iii) a rupture in terms of multi-disciplinary collaboration. We consequently have to acknowledge the fact that, at a current state, non-standard architecture still struggles in terms of self-coherency and implementation, leaving a large amount of projects at their virtual, embryonic state especially in pedagogical contexts. We believe the challenge resides in overcoming the overly simplistic and reductionist appeal of purely formal and visual non-standard architecture: these morphologies should, on the contrary, be intrinsically defined by their form and structure relationship. We suggest such reconciliation should occur during the early stages of architectural education. Two experimental instruments, that perhaps constitute interesting renewed pedagogical models, are reported in this paper and we conclude by listing the remaining challenges when it comes to the teaching of architectural morphogenesis.

From a collaboration of formal and architectural research between architect and artist, we present the summary of an experimental approach that illustrates the creation and construction of a functional space, located at the borders of the sculpture and the architecture. We present a look at the method, according to a revised approach to digital modeling / re-design. This has been an exploratory approach through the study of three generic models of the form. We present the experimental method, the selection of relevant parameters in form finding coupled with the integration of material and physical data specific to the object. We also expose the benefits of this approach, its limitations and the possibilities it offers as a generic point of view. [less ▲]

Cette année académique 2009-2010 a été riche en débats, parfois contradictoires, qui ont alimenté la réflexion de l’équipe pédagogique et des étudiants, notamment en relation avec le contenu du programme de la 1ère maîtrise en atelier d’architecture. Comment définir le rôle de l’architecte dont le travail doit s’inscrire dans le processus d’un projet de ville ? Comment maîtriser les échelles graphiques d’un projet d’architecture quand on doit l’intégrer, non seulement dans un contexte, mais aussi dans une dynamique plus générale ? Comment prendre position en même temps en termes de typologies et de densités urbaines, en termes de formes, en termes de détails constructifs et de choix de matériaux ? C’est autour de ce type de questionnements que notre équipe pédagogique développe sa didactique. [less ▲]
