Non-residential Design Studio


This course presents a unique opportunity for students to be involved in defining and creating the program, with the clients' input, for a space that they will design as part of the whole studio experience. Students will interact with the clients -- interviewing them, presenting ideas to them, and responding to the clients' requests and criticisms. The first half of the semester will be devoted to strategic planning, setting goals, and interviewing (establishing the program). This work will be done as a group. The second half of the semester will be spent creating schematic diagrams, design development drawings, construction documents, perspectives, a model and finish/color board(s). This work will be done individually. This studio may be taken at either the bachelor's or master's level.
