[LS] Sustainable Systems

Spring 2019

Taught By: Jamie Kruse

Section: AL1

CRN: 3789

Credits: 3

This course provides an introduction to the systems inherent in adaptive, resilient design practices. What are the challenges and opportunities for designers when they create ​products, systems, and services that are socially, environmentally and economically sustainable? This course begins to address that question. The curriculum is structured around four major themes; ​Climate Change, Materials, Energy,​and ​Water​. These interrelated themes frame students' observations as they study real conditions that are both local and accessible and in­class discussions teach students to translate research into creative solutions. The class activities combine field trips, lectures, studio­based workshops, lab experiments and seminars. Both the fieldwork and applied research methods are then developed into creative works that support diversity, adaptability and resilience in the face of ever changing conditions. This Language Supported (LS) course is specially designed for students for whom English is a second language. LS courses have the same content as non-LS courses as well as extra attention to vocabulary, cultural references, and support for reading and writing. Students will engage with the materials in a supportive and dynamic learning environment as they become acclimated to American educational context, culture, and expectations. Parsons LS faculty possess training specific to both the content area and language support focus.
