Design Criticism as Insight and Potential [Ayad Rahmani]
This class is presented in partnership with ARCADE. ARCADE’s mission is to reinforce the principle that thoughtful design at every scale of human endeavor improves our quality of life.
All Levels | This workshop will seek a new approach to design criticism—one with less judgment and more insight. Writers will learn to develop narratives that open up alternative ways of understanding and relating to the designed world, from buildings to works of industrial art. No prior design or architecture experience required. Come with an interest in understanding and writing about the designed world around you. This class has a lunch break. ARCADE produces a publication and programs inspired by the myriad forces and disciplines that shape design.
