In this course students are introduced to the variety of building and manufacturing industries in and around the city through behind-the-scene tours. Students are exposed to a range of volumes of production including one-off, custom, artisanal craft, batch, and mass production. The physical scale of production is explored as well, from small parts up to the creation of architecture and urban infrastructure. Students learn about the collaborative potential of the designer with local industry, and how the design process responds to scale and volume.
