Landscapes are sites that people often take for granted; they are frequently understood as spaces in-between other things, or places that somehow exist in suspension: unchanging and untransformed. When we look more closely however, we find that landscapes are neither neutral nor empty. They are, rather, teeming with complexity and life. Indeed, landscapes are sites of intervention and negotiation: among humans, and also between humans and numerous living others.

This course will explore how mass media communicate ideas, attitudes and values about the built environment to the public. Human experience and perceptions are documented and communicated in mass media, particularly those incorporating moving images.

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.

The final course in the media sequence exposes students to more advanced parametric modeling techniques as they pertain to architectural design and representation. Building on the introductory skill-building exercises in Media 5, this course is structured into a series of in-class workshops that provide students with hands-on experience with Grasshopper 3D.

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.

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.
