This course focuses on researching and representing ecological systems and phenomena, with a concern for how visualization practices can reveal and synthesize complex social, political, and environmental relationships.
The Ecological Practices Graduate Research Group’s studio (Spring 2019) will develop and fabricate a set of experimental bioclimatic façade and screen installations that address the role of the architectural surface in the building’s adaptation to its local ecology and its ability to provide ecosystem services.
This course maps the terrain of ecological practices through examination of ten canonical project + text pairs.  The collection of ten buildings circumscribe a wide landscape of practices defined by differing agendas, logics, locations, and times.  The close examination allows one to better situate each in its technological and critical context, and gain insight into how such practices emerged.
