Charette: Collaboration + Community

Course No. FND 140A  Credits: 1.5
Faculty Christina Cassara | Jimmy Kuehnle | Kevin Kautenburger | Richard Fiorelli | Scott Ligon

This one-half semester course is framed by the theme of Community and Collaboration. The students and instructor work collaboratively to define and explore "community" as local place and learning environment. They identify and activate connections among charette members and their specified community in order to develop a consensual creative response. Through sustained exploration of one theme, the Charette emphasizes the development of skills for critical and creative thinking, experiential learning, problem-solving, and collaboration. Through materials exploration, making processes, and critique, the Charette forges links with the visual, tactile and manual skill sets taught in other Foundation classes. Each student's effort, progress, and work will contribute to a collaborative project developed over 7 weeks, to include both a charette documentation log as well as a collaborative 2D, 3D, or 4D form. Offered fall.
