0.50 Credit(s)
Academic Course
Prerequisite: 7.5 credits, including 1.0 credit of second-year liberal studies (including 0.5 VISC credit).
(NOT OFFERED IN 2009-2010)
This slide-lecture course introduces students to aspects of design that appear to have grown from a natural and traditional expression, without the benefit of a professional designer. Through an examination of indigenous and vernacular materials used in traditional design, connections between cultures rather than their separateness are emphasized. Both the historical influences of the vernacular in design and the economic and cultural factors that have led to its revival in a contemporary global context are discussed.
Anti-requisite: Students who previously took ACAD 2B12 or VISC 2B12 may not take this course for further credit.
Notes: New course level as of 2008-09
