Course Description

What’s new in the built environment?  What directions can we see?  Just in the past year or two, we find breath taking new public structures including museums, libraries, skyscrapers, airports, civic centers, and worship centers.  And what about domestic spaces, from private homes to apartment buildings?  What are the sources of inspiration for these new structures?  What are the lifestyle shifts, social, philosophical, ecological, and cultural concerns driving new design concepts?   Giant printers extruding clay or cement now create architectural structures that defy familiar building techniques.  NASA is exploring printing buildings on the moon!  Scary, but exhilarating, is the question of the role Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already playing in the future of design.  A wonder- filled new world is out there— we’ll try and see what it’s all about!
