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.
No class will be held on November 26.
"[The] instructor worked incredibly hard to make effective use of class time, push us to challenge ourselves, and offer content in a wide range of design disciplines. I got my degrees from Northwestern and Stanford and I had courses there that were less well-thought-out than this."
