This learning circle will focus on sharing a work-in-progress from this year’s Faculty Learning Community on ‘Augmented Reality and Spatial Computing.’  Within a Fall 2019 architecture studio course ‘Porch Portrayals,’ upper-level students conducted extensive research on porch sites located in Miami to create a mixed-media and Magic Leap installation ‘Design Dialogues’ at School of Architecture’s Korach Gallery. The 'porch' is one of the most recognizable symbols in the history of the traditional American home. From historic shotgun homes in New Orleans to bungalow homes in Chicago, the porch has been a key space of congregation for many demographics. To investigate the porch and its role as a collective gathering space, students researched structures through compiling and creating images, drawings, analytical diagrams, 3D models, narratives, and a physically fabricated model. This learning circle will therefore share insight into experimental pedagogies, where students imagine new architectural realities based on existing research and site data.
