Design Studio 2: Place II
Building upon the previous studio, the study of PLACE continues to provide focus for studies in the region of Greater Sudbury. Design skills, including measured drawing, comparative scales of different types of sites, and site modelling in detail are emphasized. The theme of place continues to be recorded and understood at a variety of scales, including the geology of Sudbury and the boreal forest. Emphasis is on developing a complex understanding of the place we are in through case studies and design exercises that introduce the concept of place-making within Sudbury and environs. As a winter exercise, students design and build an ice-fishing hut to be hauled out upon Lake Ramsey. One section of the studio is instructed in French.
