SART 17.14 Reinventing Architecture: Design and Social Action

By thinking more broadly about the populations served and more expansively about collaborative initiatives, designers can take on an important role in addressing the significant challenges we face in a rapidly changing and developing world. This course will include a series of drawing/media/design assignments that will serve as concentrated exercises in the investigation of architectural and spatial concepts and projects for challenged communities on the local, national and international levels. A wide array of design tools will be utilized and students will work both individually and collaboratively with classmates.  Course requirements will consist of the completion of drawing, model making and analysis assignments associated with each of the phases of the course. A substantial part of many class sessions will be dedicated to working on these assignments in the studio, thus attendance will be critical to the successful completion of the course. There will be a time commitment required outside of class to complete most assignments and additional assignments will also be made explicitly for completion outside of class. Field trips, site visits and visiting experts will be an integral component of the course.


Degree Requirement Attributes


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
