Are you interested in learning how to think spatially and design spaces which connect and inspire people?


This introductory course serves as a foundation for students to generate forms via the architectural design process by using the technique of abstraction. Students also experience the transition between thinking and designing in 2D and 3D utilizing methods such as sketching, collage-making, and model-making. Fundamental topics of architecture like form, scale, material, and light will be introduced to the students. In this project-based course, each student will generate a spatial project: a site-specific public installation.
