Gain hands-on experience designing with nature to find solutions to global issues. Students develop and hone their skills in project planning, self-discipline, collaboration, creativity, and the design process as they work individually and in diverse groups on multiple design challenges; including projects that engage actual clients, real sites and real budgets. From constructing a scaled sculpture model to presenting design solutions to a real-life client, projects are a hands-on way of applying what you’ve learned and are an important part of the portfolio you will create.
