Description

Inspiration for design is everywhere, from the natural world around us to everyday objects. Architects channel this inspiration when building designs that are responsive to nearby surroundings, human inhabitants and the use of finished structures. In this course, students engage in idea generation, sketching, drafting and model making. This concept-to-design-to-build process begins in RISD's Nature Lab, where students investigate various natural structures. They then explore personal, societal and cultural needs as they transform these ideas into drawings and handmade architectural models.
