Design II

Course No. FND 108  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Christi Birchfield | Jimmy Kuehnle | Kathy Buszkiewicz | Kevin Kautenburger | Lauren Herzak-Bauman | Petra Soesemann | Richard Fiorelli
Prerequisite(s) Design I

This course builds on the experiences of Design 1, with compositional and conceptual problems being explored fully in three dimensions in. Form, mass, volume, spatial interactions, material qualities, and physical forces are key factors. Students continue to learn to perceive and control visual relationships within the design structures they make. The aesthetic and conceptual potential of materials and processes (craft) are also vital aspects of this studio course. Creative processes of problem solving through research, investigation and ideation, together with an attitude of discovery, are required for all concept and project explorations. Ideational drawing, model making, material studies, and prototypes contribute to developing ideas to a high and thoughtful level. Various methods and approaches to giving form (such as additive, subtractive, assemblage and joinery) are challenges for every concept explored. Design 2 projects have the potential to be explored as sculpture, functional design, or even as hybrid. Students are challenged to follow their passions and gain experience in self- directing project outcomes. Prerequisite: FND 107 Design I. Offered spring.
