Arch 850 Design Studio

Elective studios are a form of creative project-based research. Contemporary architectural issues are addressed through a wide range of sites, design processes, climates, representation methods, programs, and thematic interests. While some courses are recurring, many topics change every semester. Students can choose from these offerings and customize a particular curricular pathway through the architecture program. Recent course topics include brownfield sites, thermal form, community advocacy, museum curation, historic preservation, urban stormwater programming, speculative detailing, hip-hop music, and more.
