Core Design Studios
The Core Design Studios introduce students to the fundamental design concepts and principles necessary to develop a variety of projects that range in scale and duration. Students begin to form a vocabulary for making spaces and forms that includes human scale, proportion, site, structure, enclosure, materiality and typology. Students are asked to generate a point of view by considering a number of ethical issues that affect their work and its relationship to the communities they are designing for. And lastly, students learn the variety of skills necessary to make and communicate their ideas.
