* Pedagogical Art

Jun 2007

How does the design of an architectural space affect social dynamics? Can art stimulate social engagement and social movement? In this project-oriented Action Research course, 20 students worked collaboratively to plan, produce and document architectural interventions designed to induce observable social change. This production-seminar was grounded in a literature drawing from art, architecture, cognitive science, sociology, and urban planning. This CAT 124 course was the recipient of a $5000 Open Classroom Challenge Grant from the UCIRA.
