  • ENVD 1020 - Studio 1: Introduction to Architecture
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020 / Fall 2021
    The second of four introductory studios introduces students to strategies and techniques of architectural design and communication in a hands-on studio environment. Students design a small-scale architectural project that responds to environmental, contextual and programmatic needs while developing the necessary skills for iterative design processes.
  • ENVD 1022 - Technology 3: Intermediate Applications for Environmental Design
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Building on the technological competencies developed in Technology 1 and 2, students explore more advanced competencies in graphic design, 3D modeling, and diagramming.
  • ENVD 1030 - Studio 1: Introduction to Landscape Architecture
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021 / Spring 2023
    The third of four introductory studios exposes students to concepts and strategies inherent to the practice of landscape architecture. Students analyze and design ecological related systems within an urban context in this immersive studio environment.
  • ENVD 1110 - Studio 2: Fundamentals of Environmental Products of Design
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020
    Building on the foundation introduced in EPoD Studio 1, this studio introduces students to more advanced methodologies and techniques related to the design of products at a human scale while considering the interdisciplinary nature of the other specializations. Using complementary skills in 3D modeling, drawing, diagramming, and through physical making and fabrication, students explore imaginative and innovative design solutions of small-scale products.
  • ENVD 1130 - Studio 2: Fundamentals of Landscape Architecture
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2021 / Fall 2022
    Building on skills learned from the introductory studio, this course expands the skills and knowledge needed for the practice of landscape architecture. With a focus on resilient design and an exploration through multiple scales, students design ecological systems in an urban context.
  • ENVD 2003 - Ecological Systems in Design
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2021 / Fall 2022
    Introduces the essential principles and concepts of ecology as they relate to the design and understanding of the built environment. Students explore interactions between people and nature, the design of resilient ecological systems and ways that the built world is influenced by its environment.
  • ENVD 2352 - Beginning Digital Applications
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Spring 2020
    Foundation level computing skills for design analytics and representation.
  • ENVD 3100 - Environmental Design Studio 3
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2022
    Exposes students to a sequence of design investigations that lead to the development of design concepts for critical evaluation and discussion. The intent of this introductory design studio is to expose students to the fundamental design practices that are common to the disciplines of environmental design, planning, urban design and landscape design - that share the responsibility fro shaping the designed environment. Recommended corequisite: ENVD 3122.
  • EPOD 3100 - Studio 2: Intermediate Environmental Products of Design
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Introduces students to innovative emerging technologies and techniques in digital fabrication and design through a project-based studio environment. Students will be asked to develop design solutions that could be leveraged to benefit humanity through material investigations, cradle-to-cradle methodology, and more advanced methods in design optimization.
  • LAND 3100 - Studio 2: Intermediate Landscape Architecture
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021
    Building on skills established in Studio A, this studio advances the understanding of the practice of landscape architecture by incorporating projects through community engagement or other real-world applications. This studio builds on the digital technologies and drawing and graphic communication skills.
  • LAND 4100 - Capstone in Landscape Architecture
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020 / Summer 2020 / Summer 2021 / Spring 2023
    Building on skills established in Studio B, the studio refines the student's practice of landscape architecture through a design-build project or other applied, hands-on design project. The studio introduces critical concepts, strategies and advanced technical skills in order to address the pressing issues that can be addressed through landscape architecture.
  • PLAN 3100 - Studio 2: Intermediate Planning and Urban Design
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021
    Uses intermediate-level planning concepts and practices to create solutions to specific challenges in a collaborative process. Through a sequence of design investigations students explores issues such as equity, housing, transportation, community engagement and land use.
  • PLAN 4100 - Capstone in Planning and Urban Design
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2020 / Summer 2021
    Applies advanced concepts in comprehensive planning and plan-making for communities. The project engages communities to solve complex problems in social and ecological systems using qualitative and quantitative skills.
