This course will explore a variety of techniques in ceramic fabrication that cross digital craft and traditional production methods. This course requires a willingness to experiment with both analog and digital fabrication methods.

This course will investigate the theoretical frameworks of architectural materiality as they emerged during the era known as the “Enlightenment” (modernity, in other words), leading to the suspicion towards that commitment that emerged in the post-WWII period.
6/26/18
This course focuses on construction materials, systems and integrated design.  Through the careful study of buildings that relate concept to construction systems and tectonics, students develop an appreciation for the value of fully resolved execution.  This study locates architecture at the juncture of design intention and technical means.

This course provides an introduction to the environmental and the design aspects of architectural lighting and acoustics. The series presents both qualitative criteria relating to architectural concepts and computational analysis to assist design. Students will develop an understanding of interior lighting, daylighting, room acoustics and noise control as components of architectural design through a structured program of lectures, readings, exams and projects.

This course will focus on the professional practice of architecture including (the following are the NAAB Student Performance Criteria addressed in the class) an understanding of the fundamentals of building costs, such as acquisition costs, project financing and funding, financial feasibility, operational costs, and construction estimating with an emphasis on life-cycle cost accounting.

In this course students will then learn how to build a model from start to finish using Autodesk Revit to create construction documents and details, model custom components, link models together, create renderings and walkthroughs, and touch on site placement.

How do we formulate our position as architects? This seminar will ask you to critically reflect on your practice thus far, and to develop a working manifesto outlining your approach to architectural design. You will begin by considering the imminent demolition of a completed studio project (probably from third or fourth year). Through the prism of this impending demise, you will invent a narrative for your work at large, deploying the ghost of a disappeared architecture in the service of renewed interest in and reinvigoration of your young, promising architectural practice.

This course applies a critical framework to the examination of housing and community development systems in the US, focusing on historic patterns of discrimination and societal inequality that have been reinforced and perpetuated through urban social institutions. 
6/26/18
Economic Development practitioners must understand the complex ecosystem of decision making: How do regional economies operate? How are informed decisions made and evaluated? 
6/26/18
In this course we will discuss the role of law in urban planning, the power of government to regulate land use, and the limits of that power. 
6/26/18
In this class we will develop an appreciation for the interdependence of planning, architecture, landscape and design and the roles they play in successful site analysis and subsequent construction.

The preservation/conservation of historically significant American sites, buildings, and neighborhoods is complex. Preservation in America has evolved from the “private sector’s concern for saving patriotic sites” to a movement that is Federally mandated.
