The primary goal of this studio is to engage in discourse about the built environment through the architectural design process. Design is a process of discovery based on personal experience, the joy of exploration, and a spirited intuition. Gaining skills in graphic communication, model making, and design composition, students will produce projects to illustrate their ideas and observations in response to challenging questions about the art and craft of space-making. This course will ask students to take risks, intellectually and creatively, to foster a keener sensitivity to the built environment as something that can be analyzed and manipulated. Prerequisite: one college level art history, architectural history, landscape studies, or architectural design studio course. Note: LSS 250 can substitute for ARS 283 in the Plan C studio art major. A required fee of $75 to cover group supplied materials and/or printing will be charged at the time of registration. Enrollment limited to 24.
