Explorations in Architectural Glass
0.50 Credit(s)
This course is an introduction to the cross-disciplinary field of architectural glass. Rooted in the sacred western architectural art of stained glass, re-imagined by modernists of the 20th century, and transformed in the 21st century by new digital and physical technologies, architectural glass has morphed into an extraordinary 'new' medium for the secular world's public built environment: hospitals, airports, hotels, shopping malls…

This studio course will introduce students from a variety of disciplines to current practices in the medium. Lectures, studio visits and design projects will culminate in one piece of work in glass, executed with available appropriate technologies.
Notes: Basic Photoshop skills are required.
There is a materials fee of $100 attached to this course.
