ARCH 411 – Becoming Digital


Becoming Digital serves as an introduction to the pressing concerns sparked by the embeddedness of architecture and design in ubiquitous networks of digital technology that have reshaped our surroundings and ourselves. The course teaches students digital literacy – characterized by a broad understanding of how technology works, its inherent biases and ethical implications, and its transformative effect on people’s lives – with an emphasis on a more healthful, equitable, and just world. Weekly topics include software, artificial intelligence, the internet of things, virtual reality, games, and ‘smart cities’.
