Taught By: Mark Gardner and Sharon Egretta Sutton
Section: A

CRN: 1117

Credits: 6

This spring semester studio emphasizes the crucial role that construction, materials, and detailing play in the creation of spatial environments. Taken in conjunction with Construction Technology 2, the Design Workshop enables students to collectively realize a project from schematic design through construction. Highlighting the rigors and complexities of realizing a built project, the Design Workshop offers students a rare opportunity to actually design and fabricate structures that will directly impact and enrich New York's public realm. Recent Design Workshop projects include an art gallery at Washington Irving High School, the three-phased renovation of the Parsons Architecture Department's 13th Street facility, renovation of the lobbies of 2 West 13th, and a new athletic storage facility for the New York Public Schools in conjunction with Take the Field. Students who do not enroll in the Design Workshop have the opportunity to take a parallel integrated design studio taught jointly by architects and engineers that will critically explore the creative relationship of cutting edge technology and architectural form. This project mirrors the Design Workshop in its emphasis on technical and material invention and is also paired with Construction Technology 2.

Section: B

CRN: 1864

Credits: 6

This second year spring semester Architecture Design Studio 4 emphasizes the ethics of equity, inclusion and social justice through community engagement. Interpersonal skills such as empathy, ability to listen and respond to community voices and the ability to ask questions are developed alongside interpersonal, collective problem solving and collaborative technical skills involving materiality and forms of production. Following Theories of Urban Form, Section B: Urban Architecture takes a multi-scalar, environmental justice approach. New York City and other global cities provide unique historical contexts as well as numerous frontline community and activist organizations from which to both learn from previous struggles and to participate in new forms of community organization towards the transformation of buildings and neighborhoods for non-normative but also non-capitalist, non-sexist, non-racist, non-patriarchal, non-classist, non-ageist and non-ableist ways of life. The studio will emphasize working collectively under a creative community agreement and the Jemez Principles for Democratic Organization.
