Sustainable Systems

Spring 2019

Taught By: Faculty TBA

Section: PC1

CRN: 4468

Credits: 3

This course provides students an opportunity to acquire a foundational understanding of the scientific and social issues related to the design of resilient urban futures. An understanding of the constraints, challenges, and opportunities presented by the need to design products, systems, and services that are more socially, environmentally and economically resilient is at the core of a Parsons education. This course is where that work begins. It is crucial, as both professional experts making decisions about materials flows, and as citizens, that creative practitioners have a comprehensive understanding of the scientific process, from fieldwork and laboratory to policy formulation. By combining sequenced 1) field trips and lectures to locations which will introduce and frame discussions and context-based learning related to sustainability, ecology, and systems, with 2) studio-based labs, where field work and applied scientific methods will be applied, students will translate these sets of experiences into informed creative works within the areas of art, design, and strategic design, thereby building a creative agency that supports diversity, adaptability and resilience in the face of ever-changing conditions. Open to: Parsons First Year students. Open to Sophomore, Junior and Senior students with permission only.
