Learning from Female Innovators in Art and Design
In the FS 2016 elective course “Topology” students will explore creative site-reading techniques with female innovators in art and design. The topic of investigation will be delta landscapes. As dynamic systems that defy the separation of water and soil, deltas present challenging sites for the design disciplines. To address this topic, the Chair has invited five internationally recognized, female landscape architects, architects, and artists whose professional and academic work considers amphibious territories.
Each of the guests has in her own way demonstrated a reconciliation of site and text, practice and research, employing text as an active and innovative method for site-analysis and design. Through a lecture series and a day-long workshop, the seminar will present students with the unique opportunity to enter into a personal dialogue with these professionals.
