ARCH 518 - Ecology/Technology: Theories and Practices of Nature and Design


This course proposes two parallel investigations. First, the course places current debates and imperatives about design and the natural environment in an historical and theoretical context. Secondly, operating in parallel with historical and theoretical investigation, the course involves a series of experiments in visual representation. This draws on work in cinema, digital modeling and fabrication, and traditions of scientific and statistical analysis to explore the way in which our understanding of natural and manmade systems is controlled by the way in which we can envision their existence as time-based phenomena.
