As urban and rural areas continue to accommodate an ever-growing population, we must also reckon with harmful development patterns from the past. How do we balance equitable and healthy ecological and human health? We will tackle this question through an unsung heroic method; designing with living materials (aka. plants).

This quarter, we will continuously jump between global and site-specific scales through weekly exercises, diagramming, sketching, and observations. As an introductory course, prior knowledge of plants, space, drawing, design, or ecology is not required. However, a willingness to explore, discuss, exercise your imagination, think afresh, and work hard is essential.
