Term Fall 2018
Class ARCH 509
Class Title Designing with Community
Description In order to develop successful design solutions, architects, as creative problem-solvers, must respond to a variety of inputs and criteria. These include client requirements, codes and standards, site and environmental considerations, and increasingly, community engagement to understand potential impacts of a project on existing neighborhood residents. Planning and design professionals, operating across disciplines with economists, policy-makers, and others, have a principal role in working with residents and stakeholders to create visions that use the power of design to shape the built and natural environments, which in turn influence social constructs. Too often, however, agents of urban redevelopment overlook the authentic cultural history of neighborhoods, and overwrite such narratives with rebranding strategies aimed at creating distance between what was, and what is to be.
