We offer online workshop sessions as well as in-house classes for adults. Each workshop focuses on a specific topic and information is provided by way of images and discussion. Then, the a solution to a specific design challenge is created by each individual.
The online workshops consist of a total of six-hour sessions with additional activities between each session. In-house workshops are two-hour sessions for four consecutive weeks.
The instructor will be available for questions via Basecamp between online and in-person sessions. Basecamp will be available for all participants during the sessions at no additional cost.
For online participants, we will use Zoom or Google Hangouts for our sessions and is also part of the fee.
Some of the areas of exploration covered during these class sessions are:
How we live: Adjacency of different building types, relationship of human activities to the organization of towns and cities, circulation patterns and an increased awareness of our built environment.
Cultural values: What is important in different cultures and how it is expressed in built form.
History: How our building types have developed over the centuries and why.
City planning: We will look at layouts of different cities around the world and use those ideas for designing a new town.
Confidence in ideas: Sometimes we lose confidence in ourselves and our ideas. In these sessions, everyone’s ideas have merit and creativity is encouraged.
