Laboratory 2 creates opportunities for students to pursue deeper engagements, positioning art and design practice within larger social, economic, or cultural contexts. Through collaborative practices, students learn to formulate and articulate problems and to turn these into structured plans of action. The thematic framework established in Laboratory 2 is intended to broaden students’ understanding of the study of art and design as applied disciplines that are fundamentally engaged with society and culture. Lab offers four Spring options: Get Involved, City Cultures, Innovate: Art Meets Science, and Sustainable City. This course, taught by faculty from different programs at Parsons as well as practitioners in a diverse range of fields, exposes students to the breadth of studies in art and design, and the relationships, commonalities and differences among the disciplinary approaches at Parsons.
