Indigenous Design

This course examines questions surrounding Indigenous design. How does the study of Indigenous knowledges, cultures, practices and traditional protocols inform design? Indigenous design context, processes, strategies and world views are explored in an attempt to broaden the discourse on architecture from the perspective of Indigenous communities. Design Studio projects are identified each year, building upon various community requests. Partnerships between faculty members and community groups are integral to the course. Students may not retain credit for more than one of the following: ARCH 5505, 5515, 5525. PREREQ: None (design studio inst, lec, sem), cr 6 (Design Stream).
