A1: PRECEDENTS

4.024, SPRING 2021

BRIEF

St​udy different precedents from across history and geographies. This exercise will help ground us as we move forward in our projects and contextualise our thinking around observatories. The categories include:

  • Tools

  • Pre-Telescopic Observatories

  • Observatories Until 1960

  • Contemporary Observatories

  • Apertures

This was a group effort, and I wish to extend full credit to Nina Huttemann, Nicole Teichner, Alice Ho, and Stephanie Li for putting this together with me, as well as our incredible instructors Marlena Fauer and Erin Wong for developing the template and planning out the different precedents. The images featured on this page explicitly are my own, but the full project is viewable on Miro.
