- Urban Design
- Interdisciplinary Visual Arts
In this course, students will engage design within large urban landscapes. Students will develop a critical understanding of the urban context and a designer’s role in unearthing, framing, understai-scale analysis, and continuing with developing concepts and visual responses to specific questions, students map their own urban trajectories, practices and experiences, as well as those of other human and non-human actors in the city. In parallel with analyzing films, theoretical works, and art installations, students will be engaged in hands-on inquiries and will deploy digital photography, video, diagramming, three dimensional modeling and online forms supported by the Internet to document and then represent their designs in the city. In this course students will be expected to explain and defend their views effectively and rationally through visualization and written work. Students are expected to draw from the technical skills learned in other design courses and address projects in one or more media. In order to be successful in this class, students must be able to make connections between concept and media and complete visual and written projects using these connections.
