Design is both creative and meticulous. It is a process that involves generating ideas, then editing and refining those ideas before producing the final result. The steps in the design process are universal and can be applied to any design problem, whether it is a written document, the design of a space or the design of a product.
As a teacher, I articulate what I have learned as a professional architect and designer, sharing my accumulated knowledge and skills with the students. This information is the basis for a variety of activities that reinforce core learning objectives. Students observe, evaluate, collaborate and create as they approach each assignment as a design problem. Students communicate design concepts visually and orally using the appropriate visual communication tools for the phase of design: drawing, drafting (by hand or computer), board building and models.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
· Since this course is an independent study, self-directed learning is expected. The student will be assigned a weekly report that will require readings from several sources including textbooks, the internet and local resources such as manufacturer’s representatives, showrooms, and suppliers.
· If the student must miss a scheduled meeting, and she gives advance notice, her absence will be excused. Three excused absences will be allowed without penalty. The fourth and subsequent absences will be considered unexcused and each will result in a 10% deduction from the final grade.
· If the student misses any meeting without advanced notice, her absence will be unexcused. Each unexcused absence will result in a 10% deduction from the final grade.
