courses taught

  • ENVD 1010 - Studio 1: Introduction to Environmental Products of Design
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021 / Fall 2021 / Spring 2022 / Fall 2022 / Spring 2023 / Fall 2023
    The first of four introductory studios introduces students to concepts and techniques related to the design of products at a human scale. In an immersive project-based studio environment students develop the foundation of design communication and thinking through a series of hands-on projects with physical outcomes.
  • ENVD 1012 - Technology 2: Visual Communications
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020
    Explores the basic written and graphical communication skills necessary for environmental design through typography, composition, visual hierarchy, color theory, and descriptive writing. Students continue to develop a variety of digital tools used in written and graphic communications building on the skills introduced in Technology 1.
  • ENVD 1020 - Studio 1: Introduction to Architecture
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020 / Fall 2021 / Fall 2023
    The second of four introductory studios introduces students to strategies and techniques of architectural design and communication in a hands-on studio environment. Students design a small-scale architectural project that responds to environmental, contextual and programmatic needs while developing the necessary skills for iterative design processes.
  • ENVD 1102 - Design and Communication 2
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2018
    Using both lectures and drawing exercises, this class extends understandings of the representational conventions used by the design professions through its introduction to the possibilities offered by traditional techniques for the advanced practices for design visualization, representation, and communication. Recommended corequisites: ENVD 1104 and ENVD 2003.
  • ENVD 2352 - Beginning Digital Applications
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2020 / Fall 2020 / Summer 2021
    Foundation level computing skills for design analytics and representation.
  • ENVD 3152 - Introduction to Computer Graphics Applications
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Spring 2019
    Explores principles and uses of computer graphics in design. Topics include creation and modification of complex two- and three-dimensional objects; orthographic and perspective views; use of color; input using mouse and digitizer; output using screen, plotter, matrix printer, and slides; automated aids for form generation and manipulation; and analysis of current and future trends of computer usage for design. May be repeated up to 12 total credit hours.
  • ENVD 3200 - Advanced ENVD Studio
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2018
    Design studio dealing with problems at an intermediate level of complexity: emphasis is on the interaction of form, use, and multiple values and technologies in conjunction with issues and techniques drawn from other content area courses of the curriculum. May be repeated up to 18 total credit hours. Recommended prerequisite: ENVD 2130.
  • ENVD 3300 - Special Topics: Intermediate Design Lab
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Summer 2019
    Design lab exploring new and emerging themes in environmental design. May be repeated up to 18 total credit hours.
  • ENVD 4100 - Advanced Design Lab 1
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Design lab exploring new and emerging themes in design. May be repeated up to 18 total credit hours.
  • ENVD 4352 - Special Topics: Computer Methods
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019 / Spring 2021
    Topics include animation and environmental simulation, computational methods of technical evaluation and optimization, and computational mapping and analysis. May be repeated for credit by petition.
  • ENVD 4365 - Special Topics: Technology and Practice
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020 / Spring 2024
    Provides an advanced seminar on new technologies and issues of professional practice in the environmental design professions.
  • ENVD 4420 - Senior Capstone Seminar
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019
    Advanced seminar focuses on theoretical concerns and practical issues inherent in environmental design and planning. Views concerns and issues in terms of setting, processes, and planning and design outcomes. Provides a critical synthesis of the inherently interdisciplinary nature of planning and design education.
  • ENVD 4919 - Teaching Assistant
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019 / Spring 2020 / Spring 2021
    By special arrangement with instructor. May be repeated up to 99 total credit hours. Recommended prerequisite: 3.00 GPA.
  • EPOD 3100 - Studio 2: Intermediate Environmental Products of Design
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Introduces students to innovative emerging technologies and techniques in digital fabrication and design through a project-based studio environment. Students will be asked to develop design solutions that could be leveraged to benefit humanity through material investigations, cradle-to-cradle methodology, and more advanced methods in design optimization.
  • EPOD 3101 - Ethics and Professional Responsibilities for Environmental Products of Design
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020 / Fall 2020 / Fall 2021 / Fall 2022 / Fall 2023
    This course investigates the consequences of designing new products in light of current societal and environmental problems. Students are exposed to issues related to resources, materials, fabrication methods, and product life-cycle from an aesthetic, ethical, and environmental perspective.
  • EPOD 4012 - EPOD Capstone Proposal Seminar
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Spring 2021
    Exposes students to research and development methodologies related to Environmental Products of Design. Students conduct thorough analysis of a user base, asses environmental impact of their design idea while developing a strategy for branding and fabrication. Finally, a proposal for a design solution of an identified problem is be presented which sets the thematic groundwork for the final Capstone Studio, EPOD 4100.
  • EPOD 4100 - Studio 3: Capstone in Environmental Products of Design
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020 / Spring 2021 / Summer 2021 / Spring 2022 / Spring 2023 / Spring 2024
