    EDAD401 Integrated Systems 3 cr.


    Students explore strategies for enclosing buildings and examine how to integrate the building enclosure with its surrounding environment including framing, climate modification, and building services systems.  Using their design from a prior studio as the basis for developing building enclosure systems, students research and explore multiple building service/ environmental systems that compliment their design in a sustainable context. This exploration includes how to evaluate, select and coordinate the structural framing and commonly used building service and environmental systems in association with the building envelope and it’s details.  Students use their projects to gain knowledge of these systems as well as discover how to coordinate the interface between dissimilar enclosure systems.

    EDAD405 Making Cities Work 3 cr


    What design decisions lead to a more sustainable future and how are those decisions made? In this course we examine how the architecture and design of cities is dependent on the underlying urban fabric by looking carefully at the forces that shape great urban spaces - the designers, the political players and the everyday urban dwellers. 

    Contemporary projects ranging from The High Line in Manhattan to Germany’s Landschaftspark Duisburg-Nord are used as case-studies in conjunction with study of Boston’s historical and contemporary urban landscape. Students’ final projects for the course involve direct observation, analysis and documentation of selected sites in Boston. Through case studies and investigations in Boston we critically assess the social, cultural, environmental and economic factors that influence built and landscape fabric of cities and what the confluence of those underpinnings means for the future of the places where we live.

    In the second half of Fashion History, this course explores the glamorous fashions of the Rococo period. Magnificent architecture, artworks, and portraits painted by English and French artists set the tone for the early part of the course. Rigid garments are a reflection of the social structure and class system that will come undone with the rise of the French Revolution. “The Age of Napoleon” (or French Empire as it is more typically known) will be depicted in all of its contrived glory by Jacques Louis David in paintings elevating the newly formed French court in 1804. This course will also cover the rise of the new middle class, the elongated and romantic span of the Victorian era (1837-1901), and the development of machinery to speed up textile production, mechanical looms, and the sewing machine. The changes in masculine and feminine roles will also play a part in the reaction to fashion for the people who lived in those times. Paris, as the new center of fashion with the development of the French Couture and the designer salon, will be examined from the 1850’s to the 1960’s. Art, culture, music, and the “Silver Screen” will provide a backdrop for the direction of fashion throughout the twentieth century.

The Design Partnership will directly address the goal of sustainable employment for a group of women who are perfecting their apparel and accessory design skills focusing on renda de bilro or Brazilian bobbin-lace. The groundwork for this exchange is the work of a non-profit organization, Fairloom. The challenge is to find products that can be marketed in the United States, yielding enough of an income for the women to support themselves as well as continue to support their on-going business endeavor. Students will have projects to complete on their own as well as participate in the required workings of a small fashion/ textile business. The first half of the trip will be spent finding inspiration in the surroundings. Along with starting the design process of their own concepts, students will help the women with some fashion production elements. The second half of the trip will be used to collaborate with the women on design ideas for garments and accessories.
