How do questions of legibility in architecture engage a global milieu? This typically travel focused studio develops a large and complex architectural project in an urban context, examining through design the relationship between a specific locale and culture on the one hand and on the other a global economy and discipline.

Architects are increasingly being asked to address the urgent demands of global urban expansion and its constituencies with deft agile designs supported by incisive research. Architecture 302: Architecture and Globalism expands the school’s commitment to engaging the demanding architectural and urban questions that increasingly affect a global public. Students are asked to think broadly about the role architects can play as global practitioners through research and analysis that focuses on the formulation of a building design project. This spring semester, the studio centers around a project in / and research trip to Colombia and its two principal cities: Bogotá and Medellín, where students will explore the particulars of a site and program in / for Bogotá, and study the pressing urban questions that underpin any practice in such a charged context.
