In this class we will use a NYC street or neighborhood as our site, exploring, as our design project, the ways in which designers can create more sustainable shared urban spaces. We will engage in research as both an observer and a key participant in an iterative loop. We will create design-based proposals using a variety of tools, including mapping, drawing, model-making, photo-collage. Some of the topics and methods that will be introduced include resilience, urban ecosystems and the drawing set.
