DESGN-600

Form Studio is the introductory studio class in the graduate design program. This class offers students a strong foundation in the making, assessing, and critiquing of visual materials and begins a discussion that will reverberate through the rest of their studies. Students learn the use and structure of materials and media, and the development of a rigorous and disciplined process through which they can create and analyze what they are creating. Much is made of the relationship between intention and reaction, and the sharpening of an awareness of physiological sensation as an integral part of design development. Ultimately successful students will develop the necessary skills of experimentation, articulate criticism and constructive questioning necessary to generate remarkable work.
