Disaster is, by definition, an ill-starred event. Whether caused by natural or human-made conditions, or a combination thereof, disasters test the resilience and humanity of our twenty-first century co-existence. In light of the increasing frequency and magnitude of catastrophes dominating world headlines, it is imperative that we better prepare ourselves across all ages and demographics, through design. In this interdisciplinary course, students will work with experts to develop local and global design propositions to strategically prevent and tactically respond to disasters at all scales and locations of intervention. Students from the following programs are welcome: Architecture, Interior Design, Industrial Design, Lighting, Transdisciplinary Design, Anthropology and Sociology, Strategic Design and Management, Data Visualization, Communication Design, Design and Technology.

Open to: Graduate students and upper-level undergraduates by permission only. Pre-requisite(s): none.
