From house compounds to neighbourhoods, and from villages to rice-fields and regions with rivers and rivulets, we organize our surroundings in shifting scales and scopes. Scale is not only a difference in geometry, size and dimension, it is the basis of our changing geographic imagination; scale triggers perceptual shifts that affect how we see the world and live in it. Being most critical to the arrangement of architecture, landscapes and settlements, the Academic Sessions in Fall 2017 — “large scale,” “medium to small scale,” and “human scale” — will offer workshops, seminars and studios that will explore the consequences of scale.
