Fall 2024
Taught By: Faculty TBA
Section: A

CRN: 14460

Credits: 3

This course aims to develop an understanding of the elements of the interior and their effects on the experience of space via the lens of how they are made. The course will: investigate current and historical methods of fabrication; question why things are made the way they are and whether they could be made differently; identify and highlight connections between hand/machine, craft/mass-production, customization/serialization; address ethical and environmental issues with regards to making things. The goal is to: develop a working vocabulary with which designers converse with makers and fabricators; understand the importance of the hand in the design process; and re-imagine the possibilities of production with this new understanding. Topics will include issues of efficiency, material usage, manual skill and tradition, byproducts of manufacturing, scale, and designer/maker interface. The course format is comprised of lectures, discussions of weekly readings, visiting designers/fabricators and off-site visits to factories and production facilities.
