COURSE DESCRIPTION
:
NR 185 Catalyzing Ecological Design: FOOD HUB-Build Studio
 is the conclusion of a design competition class, Catalyzing Ecological Design from fall 2013, (it does not have pre-requisites though). The class culminated in a worldwide design competition and award ceremony in Feb 2014
. This class will ―cherry pick
 the design competition for good ideas and compose them into a
unique work that the class will follow through to execution. The class will be a ‗design
-build
intensive‘ and will include
work over the time-period weekends. A ribbon cutting ceremony and party are planned for the unveiling of the final work, Tuesday Sept 23rd. Courtyard design/Gate Build.
 An ‗ice
-breaker d/B project will be our first foray on day 2 in the
courtyard. Further design and experimentation for the creation of a ‗FOOD HUB‘ in
the Greenhouse Courtyard will begin immediately. Current ideas envision a pavilion that can produce food, and process foods from outside (such as apples or maple sap), and act as collection space for food system/design applied thinking. Students will have the opportunity to focus almost the entirety of their classwork on a single project. Students will learn and develop critical thinking in the following areas: the field of ecological design, design-build architecture, the relationship between form and function, poetics of place-making, and building systems functions. It will enable students to understand the cumulative efforts and knowledge areas inherent to any large built work. The design-build project will be a permanent or semi-permanent installation surrounding/adjacent to
 
The Greenhouse Residency Hall. A strong emphasis will also be made on readings from a wide range of designers, inventors, and architects to help inform the analysis, design, and building process throughout the intensive course. Collaborations with the Art and Engineering Department may develop to diversify and enhance the design-build projects in The Greenhouse Courtyard.

SEMINAR: Designing Use and Beauty: and Tyler Kobick Project 1:
 
Materiality: Form and Function
What makes a material beautiful? How do you define beautiful? A form useful? What happens to the relationship between material and application? Examples from Jean Nouvel; Javier Senosiain (Shell House, Mexico);Carlos Scarpa, Frank Lloyd Wright, Capadocia, Turkey; Beijing, Berlin, Aiken Center, etc.
What is the ―ecointegration‖
of building systems with natural functions (air, water, diurnal
temperatures, waste, energy…)? How do we engage these functions into the building
form
—how do they reflect, determine, enhance, or diminish a building‘s form(s) and
function(s)?
