Course Description

Second semester core studio explores the research and design methods associated with interventions in complex urban conditions: sites layered with multiple interventions across a long span of history that present issues of connectivity, accessibility, identity, and need for contemporary programs. Students will learn to apply various forms of research - historical, social, material, spatial, and technical - to the formulation of project arguments and strategies. Emphasis will be placed on exploring the relationship between documentation, analytical research and design through diverse conceptual frameworks and projective representational techniques.
