EVDS 1660 Granove EVDS 1600
Introduction to Environmental Design
June 1 - August 14, 2020
Darcy Granove
An introduction to the philosophies, theories, practices, processes and methods that
collectively compose the discipline of Environmental Design. The focus will be on the social, environmental, and technological issues that shape the built environment and on an examination of the challenges and roles facing environmental designers in the contemporary world.
   
EVDS 1602 - Black EVDS 1602
Visual Literacy
June 1 - August 14, 2020
Honoure Black

This course examines the contemporary visual and spatial environment, its critical historical influences and emerging cultural issues. The structure of image and form, the foundations of spatial and visual knowledge and the importance of materiality as they pertain to Environmental Design will be advanced as well as disciplinary appropriate methods of communication.
   
EVDS 1660 EVDS 1660
History of Culture, Ideas and the Environment I
June 1 - July 3, 2020
Honoure Black

Historical survey of key works from the foundations of civilization to the Enlightenment, including interdisciplinary perspectives in art, architecture, interior design, landscape architecture and urban planning considered in the physical, socio-economic, political, artistic and cultural contexts.
   
EVDS 1670 EVDS 1670
History of Culture, Ideas and Environment II
July 13 - August 14, 2020
Honoure Black

A historical survey of western movements in art, architecture, interior design, landscape architecture and urban planning considered within the physical, socio-economic, political, artistic and cultural context. An introduction to the historical influence of the art, design and culture of non-western traditions will be included. Emphasis is on works created after the Enlightenment.
   
EVDS 1680 EVDS 1680
Environmental Technology
June 1 - July 3, 2020
Suchita Ghosh
This course explores the intersection of the built environment and natural systems. To establish this relationship, bearings of natural systems (of sun, wind and water) on the built environment is reviewed. To better understand the challenges posed by the relationship between science and technology and issues of urbanization, the impact of contemporary design thinking, methodologies and practices on buildings, cities and landscapes are examined. Emerging environmental issues such as natural resource depletion, fossil fuel dependencies, rising sea levels and climate change are probed.
   
EVDS 3710
Berlin Film Museum (2014)
EVDS 3710 / ARCG 7070
Cinematic Cities: Urban Representation in Film and Photography
June 1 - August 14, 2020
Ralph Stern

This course introduces students to the central importance and influence of cinema in constructing and comprehending urban environments. Addressing cities in an international context (Europe, Latin and North America, Asia, and North Africa) this seminar will provide a structured and historical overview of seminal filmic representations of urban pasts, presents, and futures.
A central objective of the course is to provide students with the knowledge of ‘seeing’ cinema as both an interpretive art form and an investigative tool. Together these can embody and expand design intentions intersecting urban, architectural, interior, and landscape narratives; narratives intersecting individual, social and cultural fears and aspirations spanning from the dystopian to the utopian. 
   
EVIE 4004 EVIE 4008
Design Media (AutoCAD)
May 4 - July 26, 2020 (Registration Revision Period May 4 to May 15)
Rick Hiebert

Many Architectural and Engineering offices use AutoCAD to create construction drawings. This course will focus on the creation of two dimensional architectural working drawings in a set of construction documents through the use of advanced features in AutoCAD. Students will learn the concepts of formatting units, text, dimensions, multileaders, and layouts, using both non-annotative and annotative scaling techniques. Students will also learn how to use AutoCAD in a 3D environment creating realistic shapes. 3D skills acquired here will be relevant to other software.
   
EVIE 4014 EVIE 4014
Advanced Interior Design Media (Revit)
May 4 - July 26, 2020 (Registration Revision Period May 4 to May 15)
Rick Hiebert

This course will teach the concepts of building information modeling, parametric design, and construction documentation through Autodesk’s Revit software. Through the use of intelligent building components and interdependent views of the building model, students will see how and why this type of software is transforming the way we produce presentation and construction documentation with the added ability to glean statistical and quantitative information from it.

About Time: Landscapes' Temporalities
June 1 - July 3, 2020 (Exam period: July 6 - 10, 2020)
Brenda Brown

Seminar/ discussion. Time, as idea and experience, will be considered in relation to landscapes, their architecture and their art. Topics will include landscape and memory, public and personal time, natural and cultural time, diurnal and seasonal time, landscapes and motion, temporal evocation, intrinsic time, ephemeral design, and more. Design examples will be drawn from a wide range of sources. While there will be lectures, the course will largely revolve around a routine of assigned readings and their discussion. There will also be two significant design-oriented projects. Class meetings and discussion will be via Skype, Zoom or Teams, depending on what works best for those involved. Enrollment is limited to graduate students in the Department of Landscape Architecture with the instructor’s permission.
