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.
"Great class that definitely broadened my understanding of what design is. This class allowed me to get more familiar with design concepts, how to talk about design, analyze and provide feedback on good or bad design, and allowed me to start figuring out how to clearly articulate my design vision."
