This course teaches students how to design a home and communicate that design through floor plans, sections, elevations, and a scale model. Through conversation, lectures, and slides we explore such issues as site planning, climatic design, sustainability, building layout, structural principles, materials, energy conservation, solar strategies, and what makes a building a beautiful expression of its occupant's lifestyle. The class visits local homes to view original, creative, and traditional design concepts. Students learn the fundamentals of a design process that they can apply to their individual projects. This class is perfect for those interested in new home construction, remodeling or renovation, or exploring a new career. Please see the course syllabus for a detailed schedule. Class will meet from 7-9pm on the first night. The following days will begin at 9am. See course syllabus for full schedule.
