Course Descriptions

ARCH 452-02

Integrated Design Studio [Prof. Jennifer Shields]
When: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, 12:10 PM - 5:00 PM
This studio engages students from Architecture, Architectural Engineering, and Landscape Architecture in integrated design teams to propose a collaborative design for a building and adjacent landscape. The studio will be co-taught with Jill Nelson (ARCE) and Ellen Burke (LA). Our objectives are for students to: (1) Examine site and program through an interdisciplinary perspective. (2) Apply (practice) communication and interpersonal skills and techniques needed for integrated professional practice. (3) Apply (practice) graphic vocabularies that facilitate collaboration in the ID studio. (4) Create original and sustainable design proposals using a collaborative and integrated method. Fourth years interested in interdisciplinary practice are encouraged to enroll.

Course Descriptions

ARCH 479: Micro Projects [Prof. Dale Clifford]
When: Review Schedule Builder for Class Meeting
The course views designing and making as a form of action, as a way to make small adjustments to a larger system. Fuller gave the analogue of a small rudder being able to influence the course of a large ship, the same holds for small design insertions that increase quality of life and change the way we think. We will make a Micro Project that slips into and enlivens an existing context, hopefully a temporary gallery wall/space for Building 5. No prerequisite required, just commitment, and an interest in teamwork and making things at large scale.  Meets in the shop.
