Instructor: Justin Burnham
Starting with the study and documentation of normative practices of Mill Creek and basic understanding of the watershed's spatial geography, a rigorous examination of how buildings participate sustainably in socio-political and environmental systems. Student projects consider in a comprehensive proposal how issues of the physical site, socio-economic context, programming, structure, form, materiality, and building systems are interconnected through the design process and within the built environment. Projects typically focus on a smaller scale urban public building that is closely connected to its physical, environmental, and social context.
