Urban Ecologies Thesis

Spring 2019

Taught By: Miguel Robles-Duran

Section: A

CRN: 3165

Credits: 6

This course prepares students to construct the project begun in the third design studio. Students submit a written proposal and research materials to support a final project. They are encouraged to work collaboratively and hold group discussions as they continue with their research and develop realistic strategies for urban interventions involving local communities and institutions. They are required to design ways to test and implement these strategies. A thesis can take the form of any design, social or art practice, but must be situated within the transdisciplinary discursive space established during the first three semesters. In addition, they are required to design ways of testing and implementing the intervention strategies.

Open to: MS in Design and Urban Ecologies majors only.
