  • Transdisciplinary Design
The Transdisciplinary Design program holds a three- to five-day charrette that brings together students from across Parsons to work on a single theme. Students work in teams during the charrette, collaborating with graduate students from other disciplines. The topic of the charrette varies from year to year and is broad enough to allow for multiple types of projects. Students need to delve deeply into the process and work collaboratively and quickly to finish their projects. In order to accommodate this, all other graduate classes are suspended. Guests from outside communities and industries work with the faculty to develop a topic that is forward-looking, speculative, and open to multiple outcomes.
