This course considers the many ways through which places are constructed, culturally, socially and physically. We examine how to analyze contextual factors and intervene effectively within the complexity of the built environment. A final project involving the examination and manipulation of place and space through modeling and graphic communication is required. A required fee of $75 to cover group-supplied materials and/or printing is charged at the time of registration. Students are responsible for directly purchasing any additional supplies that may be required. Prerequisites: ARS 283, ARS 285, and two art history courses, or permission of the instructor. Enrollment limited to 12.
