Design Elements: Shaping Design Pedagogy at theTime of Global Economy
Anna Gitelman, March 2017
In this presentation, I would like to discuss international program that we launched in the Summer of 2015. It was designed for graduate students that are striving to get global perspective on the current economic developments in the world and position themselves in the global market. This program took place in Spain and was conducted in collaboration with faculties from one of the premier Architectural Schools in Madrid. This two courses 6 credits program included seminar on contemporary Spanish architecture and design studio. The goal of this program was to combine theoretical base with practical implementation of design strategies that were discovered during seminars and site visits. I will share evolution of student research and design processes as well as teaching methodologies that were used during project development and prompted students to take their research to the next level that tests the assumption that creative work and these who undertake it prosper far more in environments that appear a little un-designed or unfinished. To summarize, this program allowed students: To analyze economic situation in Spain Conduct research and develop theoretical base for their designs Create designs and utilize materials that address current economic conditions in the country This program concluded with the public exhibit that showcased projects and student research papers as an outcome of this international collaboration.
