EDAD345 Animals, Architects & Attitude 3cr
This community service project begins with a one semester design course, followed by a spring building workshop in which students design and construct an object that has a real world client with a need. This semester includes research, lectures, demonstrations, zoo visits, drawings, operational model making, and presentations. During the term students produce drawings and test models. To demonstrate the constructability of the finalized form the class works collaboratively to create a scale operational model. In spring of 2019 students may have the
opportunity to continue and construct/install the final design at the Franklin Park Zoo.
The course is presented to students with an emphasis on developing skills in research, analysis, design development, and critique with juried selection.The final result is the creation
of a useful space and structure where humans and animals interface and learn from each other with a covered stage for presentations, educational programming, concerts, and performances located at the Franklin Park Zoo.
