This graduate design studio asked the students to design a large public or commercial project as a culmination of their design education. This course pairs with a technology class (arc541) to provide the students with a rigorous and comprehensive design process. Work is done individually as well as within a small group structure. Recent projects have included a hotel in downtown Dallas, and mixed-use facility in Rio, and a transit villiage in East St. Louis. Following this studio, the students migrate into their thesis work.
