This studio/workshop explores the architectural, technological, social and economic aspects of building system design - building systems are considered in the broadest terms. ARCH 675 expects participants to be aware of and pay particular attention to the matrix of cultural, sociological and geographic extremes. Participants are expected to be capable of considerable independent study supported by frequently scheduled meetings with the course instructor. This course incorporates design-build experience, wherein the construction of proposed systems is explored through the development of prototypes. Consent of instructor required for those outside of the M.Arch program.
