The Ghost in the Machine

Spring 2012

Incessant growth of the urban condition brings new challenges and hazards to the way people live and to the way built form emerges in this context. Responding with intelligence, rather than out of habit, is now required of architects who wish to be authors of a new resilient urbanity. Beginning with small componentry, this course will unpack and interrogate the elements of urbanity, redesigning them for deployment in response to site-specific threat conditions.
