URBS 380 - Design Workshop

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
In this intensive, a small group of students work with the faculty mentor to select and address a specific architectural or urban design challenge on campus, in the city of Poughkeepsie or in the wider region. The workshop works with partner groups on or off campus that are looking for support in tackling specific, more or less defined spatial planning and design questions. Partners can be existing constituencies such as student organizations, advocacy groups and non-profits, but also less organized groups that are brought together by particular spatial issues. In either case, the students help their partners articulate the scope of a feasible planning or design study, and they then develop a report over the course of the semester. Depending on the needs of the partner, the deliverables can range from immediately implementable design (for example new signage for a local non-profit) to drawings that render spatial issues visible and thereby negotiable, and that help partners advocate for or against spatial change.

One 3-hour period.
