Full-Day Studio Course - Summer 2
3 U.S. credits recommended (non–liberal arts)
Language of instruction: English
This summer course provides an insider view of the design industry in Paris. Each week, students visit locations in the city that specialize in different areas of design, ranging from creative entrepreneurship to design technology, from gastronomy design to human services. By interviewing practitioners at design firms, creative studios, artistic ateliers, showrooms, retail locations, co-working spaces, companies, and nonprofits and in other settings, students gain insight into the state of the field in Paris and Europe. From these interactions students collectively create editorials, interviews, images, and video as documentation of their Safari exploration, writing the questions, interviewing designers, editing content, and producing the daily posts.
