CEE 32H: Responsive Structures (CEE 132H)

This Design Build seminar investigates the use of metal as a structural, spatial and organizational medium. We will examine the physical properties of post-formable plywood, and develop a structural system and design which respond to site and programmatic conditions. The process includes model building, prototyping, development of joinery, and culminates in the full scale installation of the developed design on campus. This course may be repeated for credit (up to three times). Class meeting days/times are as follows:n1st session : April 4, 10am - 6pmn2nd session : April 25th, 10am - 6pm n3rd session: May 5 , 6pm-9pm (Jun will not attend) nFinal Build dates: nMay 16 10am-eveningnMay 17th. 10am- 6:30 pm

CEE 130: Architectural Design: 3-D Modeling, Methodology, and Process

Preference to Architectural Design majors; others by consent of instructor. Projects investigate conceptual approaches to the design of key architectural elements, such as wall and roof. Functional and structural considerations. Focus is on constructing 3-D models in a range of materials; 3-D computer modeling. Students keep a graphic account of the evolution of their design process. Final project entails design of a simple structure. Limited enrollment. Pre- or corequisite: CEE 31 or 31Q.

CEE 131E: Team Urban Design Studio (URBANST 183)

This new class offers an exciting variation on the 'individual project' studio format. Students work as a team to propose a single consensus solution to a real-world design challenge. This collaborative studio experience more closely reflects the creative process in the design and planning professions where a group of individuals works together to brainstorm, shape, develop, and illustrate a community design solution. There are a number of benefits to this team-oriented approach: it is a more nurturing environment for students that do not have design backgrounds, it allows for more peer-to-peer learning, and it takes best advantage of varied student skill sets. But perhaps the greatest benefit is that a team of students working together on a common project will be able to develop a more comprehensive solution than any one student working alone. This means that the class "deliverable" at the end of quarter could be detailed enough to be of significant value to a stakeholder or client group from the larger community. This studio class, working under the guidance of an experienced instructor, functions like a design firm in providing professional-grade deliverables to real-world community design "clients'.

CEE 133H: Painting: Architecture in the Environment

This five-week course engages students in deconstructing architectural structures in relation to the environment by way of observational painting with acrylics. Through on location painting and studio sessions, students build creative capacities and develop critical thinking skills as we focus on the fundamentals of painting, discuss precedents from art and architectural history, and engage in constructive group critiques. Color theory, as it relates to value and applies to light on form and material, is examined and put into practice as students mix paint and explore a variety of techniques. Volume is a major component as we apply principles of proportion, perspective, and depth to convincingly articulate spatial relationships. Composition and design principles are investigated throughout the painting process, from preparatory graphite sketches through project completion. Active painting is enhanced by focused exercises, demonstrations, slide lectures, readings, and museum visits, all which facilitate a deeper understanding of architecture via painting. (Note: this course meets for only 5 weeks: Jan 8 - Feb 7, 2019)

CLASSICS 19N: Eloquence Personified: How To Speak Like Cicero

This course is an introduction to Roman rhetoric, Cicero's Rome, and the active practice of speaking well. Participants read a short rhetorical treatise by Cicero, analyze one of his speeches as well as more recent ones by, e.g., Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., and Obama, and watch their oratorical performances. During the remainder of the term they practice rhetoric, prepare and deliver in class two (short) speeches, and write an essay.

COMM 173E: Data Challenge Lab (ENGR 150)

In this lab, students develop the practical skills of data science by solving a series of increasingly difficult, real problems. Skills developed include: data manipulation, data visualization, exploratory data analysis, and basic modeling. The data challenges each student undertakes are based upon their current skills. Students receive one-on-one coaching and see how expert practitioners solve the same challenges. Limited enrollment; application required. See http://datalab.stanford.edu for more information.
