Design Matters (Online)

How do we form an opinion about what we see around us? How do we make decisions that are relevant in the design world? In this course, students discuss, analyze, and discover the principles of design through a comprehensive exploration of successful projects envisioned by artists, architects, theorists, and authors. This course examines problem solving through the principles of design for a variety of project types, and will include lectures, readings, and individual assignments. Class discussions will explore new aesthetic trends and examine how ideas have evolved to address new issues.

"I enjoyed learning from Professor Hoogesteger. She not only has a passion for the subject matter and the technical knowledge but made us think critically about design by involving us in different exercises and solutions, and encouraging comparative thinking. She also used story-telling and personal empathy as teaching tools which really gave me a meaningful learning experience." – Student of Design Matters with Emily Hoogesteger
