Design Appreciation Academy

  • Top Design Appreciation: Understanding Design through Exploration and Analysis
    • Program in Environmental Design:  Design Appreciation will focus on teaching students to view the built world through the eyes of a designer. Beginning with learning the history and influences of various design disciplines, students will study Architecture, Urban Planning, and Landscape Design through lectures, readings, essays, and discussions.

      For the past three decades, architectural language has become increasingly computer-based. This course guides students through a process of exploration and expression using various digital design and representation techniques common to the disciplines of environmental design. Students will be introduced to beginning level computer applications throughout the curriculum. Applications such as:
      -SketchUp Pro
      -Digital Workflows

      Design workflows are now based largely (and sometimes entirely) on the digital design methods that students will take on during this course. The usage of these applications will be the foundation that gives students the ability to quickly advance and excel in their environmental design studies.

      Note: This course is taught by the College of Architecture and Planning
