Upper Division Interdisciplinary Studios extend a student's cross-school experience from Core Studio up into their upper division years. 3 units of Interdisciplinary Studio are required of all majors and must be completed in the junior or senior year. This advanced level studio is thematic in nature. Technical demonstrations are paired with thoughtful readings, seminar discussions and ambitious projects. Collaboration, experimentation and presentation skills are developed in concert with critical thinking.Section DescriptionIn the time of environmental and political instability, there is an urgent need to re-consider the ways we, individually and collectively, care for the environment and its common resources. Can we envision fluid and dynamic relationships that embrace change and adaptability while maintaining collective responsibility and care? In particular, we will examine water - our relationship with-, access to-, and care for- water, the dynamics of flow and its ecologies. The students will engage in a series of interactive experiments that involve interdisciplinary collaboration and discovery science. We will imagine, explore, and prototype water related scenarios at all scales – from molecular and micro-organic, through skin and body, to regional, global and cosmic.
