  • Lighting Design
  • Sustainable Design
  • Design Research
This course combines deeper intellectual inquiry and technical analysis of light and architectural design through engagement with an existing urban site in New York City and the proposition of new design interventions. Students explore large-scale urban conditions, circulation patterns, and outdoor landscapes along with more challenging architectural spaces. This studio also unites lighting students with graduate students from other disciplines in order to collaboratively measure, evaluate, and propose new design projects; the proposals stimulate debate about aesthetics, energy conservation, and social ethics. Students employ a variety of techniques, including computer visualizations, physical models, and full-scale mock-ups.
