|Design with Natural Aspects
|Course Prerequisites and Class Restriction
|Nature has shaped the understandings on architecture as a theoretical ground, a discursive foundation, a rich source of raw materials
and information, a fragile shelter, as well as a continuous threat. Views on nature are both diverse and subject to transformations in
time. This course examines the varying roles that nature assumes in the understanding and conducting of architecture, in terms of
both historical and practical aspects. Participants explore various interactions between nature and architectural understandings and
practices through both theoretical studies and design applications.
