BODY–PLUS: Architecture, Design, and Disability investigates design and the potentials of design education through issues of human disability. The course is organized in two parts, prompting students to use analytical tools and creative production to examine the potentials of design through disability. Part 1 is organized through topical lecture prompts, reading responses, reading discussions, and the analysis of design precedents from garment, graphic, industrial, public space, and building design. Part 2 is organized through short design projects that require students to think analytically, work in collaborative teams, develop speculative yet plausible design concepts, and produce scaled, prototype "plus" elements for a human body.
