T 7:00-9:30pm, 148 Anderson Hall 

This course is a workshop in site planning, with Houston as its focus. A series of lectures presented by guest experts on various aspects of the local environment-including geology, hydrology, soil science, and planning regulations-serve as a rich, and unique introduction to the city. Seeing Houston through these adjacent disciplines will help illuminate the many complex issues that go into placing a building into a site, helping you become more disciplined, inventive, and effective in your own work. A series of parallel exercises over the course of the semester will help you gain practice assessing, cataloging, communicating, and laying the groundwork for your own ideas. 

Open to qualified non-architecture students, sophomores and above. Space is limited and registration does not guarantee a space in this course. The final course roster is formulated on the first day of class by the individual instructor.
