Space and Empathy
College of Architecture + Design
Radical empathy in a human-centered design approach is introduced through an investigation of the extent to which interior design can support and shape behavior for a diverse set of users with varying, complex requirements. The course explores preconceived notions around the nature of design, not as a luxury but as a human right. Emphasis will be on the development of ethically conscious design decisions in space typologies that range from permanent, provisional, mobile and transient installations.
