Visualizing and Experiencing the Built Environment

 

This course is intended to introduce the processes of visualization in relation to the alert experience of built environments and their inhabitation. Visualizing the built environment is recognition of places and activities, their organization, and the processes of change they embody. Visualization is thus a process of directly seeing and engaging places in order to discern conditions and finding the means to reflect on the findings. Reflection requires not only such direct engagement, but also systematic means for considering experience across multiple times and seasons as well as influenced by culture and dynamic city life. Students are expected to develop an urban sensibility and the ability to use non-verbal as well as verbal methods of inquiry for appreciating the spatial structure and life of built environments.
