Studio 4 expands the project scope both in scale and complexity and ends the term by reverting back to a problem situated in motion/activities and resting as defined by the single and multiples. Focus on the global/political forces and how they relate directly to program are introduced to reinforce the integral and complex nature of these forces on human-centered design. In addition to responding to the abstract nature of these issues, students are required to carefully examine the most fundamental needs of humans within a given environment. As a result, projects which call into question conventions are produced, while students are still forced to examine the issues of safety and comfort at the most fundamental level. Students are expected to produce fully-conceived projects outlining the details which make up their designs by the end of the semester, enabling them to enter the senior year prepared to deal with real-world design briefs.
