“Design III: Strategies of Architectural Design” seeks to familiarize students with architectural principles at the scales of the public square, building, and city. Through iterations of model-making, drawing, photography, and other representational methods, students explore creative design processes and develop a personal voice for their work. Special attention will be given to principles of contemporary urbanism, relating architecture to landscape architecture, planning, and urban design. Through a series of hands-on assignments, we emphasize craft, verbal presentation, curation, and relationships between design work and readings. Sites of study include Savannah GA, Chicago IL, and Chandigarh, India.
