Projects Studio 1

Fall 2020

Taught By: Greta Byrum and Eduardo Staszowski

Section: A

CRN: 2203

Credits: 6

Students exercise different versions of transdisciplinary design practice by engaging with ‘wicked’ problems and their systems that because of their complex nature ask for inquiries that happen between, across and beyond different disciplines. Students consider objective and subjective factors, techno-scientific and immaterial aspects, the cognitive and the tacit as well as physical, political and cultural dimensions. Typically structured as an initial robust research phase followed by an exploratory project that evolves through multiple prototypes, the studio explores a service-oriented creative social action on which students are required to navigate a problem space through deep research and engagement with concrete realities and communities. Special emphasis is placed on students' ability to articulate a well-founded design brief and to assess the most appropriate forms of response that may take different kinds of outcomes (systems, protocols, sites, spaces, maps, services). Students also familiarize themselves with the design process for complex projects done by collaborative teams. The MFA Transdisciplinary Design program’s Fall 2020 Studio (PGTD 5100 and PGTD 5200, Project Studio 1 & 3), is organized as a working collective of students, faculty, and collaborators engaged in thought and action to address the complexity and interdependence of systems related to those forces revealed as most critical in our current moment. Organized as four thematic areas of inquiry—expanded notions of health and care, labor and local economies, alternative education and organizational development, and the carceral—these will be approached not as discrete concerns, but as basecamps from which to build relationships and develop design-based responses. Students will have access to and can engage with lines of inquiry and exploration via design within any of these thematic areas, in collaboration with fellow students, studio faculty and an array of collaborators.

Open to: MFA in Transdisciplinary Design major and all other graduate students. Also open to undergraduates with senior standing by permission only. Please complete and submit an answer to the prompt for permission . Pre-requisite for seniors: PSDS 2100 Research and Development Methods.
