This 1.0 credit elective is an intensive 4-week interdisciplinary studio. Students will focus on imaginative consideration of the future… of human dwelling, urban development and our creative interaction with the world that surrounds us. This course has a primary focus on the built environment but is open to all students eligible for 3rd or 4th-year studio coursework who have a passionate interest in the immersive and interwoven world of architecture and art, and the creative development of the built environment.

 

We will begin with a few days in Venice, experiencing the Venice Biennale Architecture  – this year’s exhibition is entitled  Freespace  –see http://www.labiennale.org/en/architecture/2018/16th-international-architecture-exhibition... among other events and sites of interest across Venice.

 

We will then travel to Florence – with visits to Padua and Vicenza along the way. We will take up residency for three weeks in the OCADU Florence studio, and students will work there on completion of their own (pre-defined) project.

 

There will be an information session on Thursday, Jan 18, from 11 am – 1 pm in room 530 (5th floor 100 McCaul – the Materials Lab). Please come whenever you can in that time period, we will start at 11 am and repeat information as needed.

 

The deadline for student application to the Future of Inhabited Form Study Abroad course is midnight Saturday, Feb 10th.

 

Info on how to apply and FAQ's can be found online at http://www2.ocadu.ca/event/study-abroad-florence-info-sessions

 

Professor Stuart Reid will be teaching the course, and Professor Doreen Balabanoff will be participating as guest lecturer and critic.
