Class Title EXTREME URBAN EUPHORIA: CIVIC DIVERSITY AND GENETIC SPACE
Description Extreme Urban Euphoria is an excessive, over-buoyant enthusiasm disproportionate to the normative motives and practices in any civic sphere and allied networks. This course pairs the unlikely attractions between high-speed urbanization and disability culture as ideal platforms to conduct design research. Research energy is directed at developing architectural products that reconceptualizes active infrastructures between assistive devices and civic institutions. From pneumatic artificial muscles to actuated environments, to the soft-forms of civic discrimination embedded in the genetic structure of civic space, this course proposes a new form of apparatus for the urban body.
