In this course, reading, discussion and exercises focus on analyzing how design shapes – and is shaped by – everyday experience. Primary emphasis is placed on introducing skills in strategic or motivated observation – that is, on looking at the world as a designer. The course is also writing- and reading-intensive, and encourages students to develop strength in close reading and analysis, critical thinking and academic writing.
