What You Need to Know

 With travel to London, Oxford, and Canterbury, this course investigates vernacular building and material craftsmanship in Britain, and contemporary projects that forward those traditions in developing resilient responses to environmental challenges. This course pairs critical survey of British vernacular building with contemporary design practices that utilize vernacular and craft traditions as a guide to developing resiliency in design, from furniture to dwellings. “Resiliency thinking” should animate design research, for the aim of “resiliency” is to address stresses caused by environmental change. By studying resource usage and adaptive re-use practices evidenced in historic structures and objects, a design methodology can be uncovered that low-tech, locally sourced, and widely accessible. Pairing this study with contemporary adaptation of these methods avoids a nostalgia for the past, and rather points to a creative future use of local traditions.

*It is the student's responsibility to confirm with their home school/college that the course(s) taken as part of this program will satisfy their degree requirements.
