  • Architecture
  • Sustainable Design
This studio course will ask students to speculate about the complex relationship between building and the environment, with an emphasis on how issues of sustainability can be used as a catalyst for creatively rethinking conventional notions of enclosure, tectonics, and program. Assuming that the constructed and the organic are mutually imbricated systems, the course will investigate the emergent possibilities arising from new interfaces between the architectural and the 'natural'.
