Design Studio Offerings
The third year design faculty are looking forward to working with you and anticipate an exciting, creative, productive and successful year. The table provides an overview of the faculty that will be teaching during the coming academic year. This is followed by information on each faculty member and the studios that they will be teaching. The information will be updated each quarter.
If you have difficulty registering for any major or support course, contact the Architecture Department right away for advice and assistance. If all design studios are full, go to the Current Students page and fill out the Design Course Request Form.

Two Quarter Design Studio
Selected Course Activities Descriptions

PLEASE NOTE in AY 2009-2010 I am offering two very unique studio approaches both of which fit within my teaching philosophy above. In Fall, I will be leading a workshop studio which will be a hands-on full scale digital fabrication interior fit-out of the F-Stop. This will be a collaborative design studio including programming, thorough design development and graphic representation, and a series of prototypes to understand the constraints of materials and tools and the crafting of assemblies before we begin final fabrication. In Winter and Spring I will be teaching a two-quarter long comprehensive studio focusing on the rigorous design development of projects developed in winter quarter
The Fabrication Workshop is proposed as an annual studio taught in Fall quarter that initiates, designs, and fabricates furniture operating at the architectural scale. The projects initiated are intended to be spatially oriented, realizable in 1-2 quarters, and developed at a high-level of craft to contribute to the design culture of the school. Pedagogically the design process shifts the studio from a collection of studio bound through the realization of a single project. As an interior oriented design studio, an intimate understanding of how material qualities, floor, wall, and ceiling surfaces, and furnishings effect programmatic use can be obtained. As a fabrication workshop, the integration of material assemblies and contemporary digital fabrication processes are introduced early in the design process to inform design possibilities including the real world constraints of materials, tools, and budget.

Typically field trips are planned to visit the project site of the quarter long project and in the first half of the studio. At least one quarter out of the year an out of state field trip is planned. Studio typically starts with a warm-up team design project followed on with weekly design charrettes, readings, discussions, reflective journals, and reviews of student work. Note: For Winter and Spring I will be teaching a two-quarter long comprehensive studio focusing on the rigorous design development of projects developed in winter quarter.
My course objective presents an opportunity to bring together the student’s development of design skills with a real client. Arch 351,352 & 353 combined with Practice and ECS courses introduce sustainable architectural design issues and solutions. Design ideas and formal design languages must be employed to realize the needs of people and communities in a sustainable form that integrates into the site and location.
Students take a real project as a departure point for their design exploration. Students will learn about translating community needs into buildings and settings. Students utilize and expand their skills in exploring, developing and using concept development, precedent studies, architecture field trip, programming, site analysis, design responses, the use of building technology and sustainability. Students continue developing their 2D & 3D drawing/modeling/digital skills, while exploring different building space, form and materials.
