Synopsis

Catalog Description

Learning Places in Scandinavia is a graduate visual analysis course that explores urban places in Scandinavia, and how we learn from place. Central to this exploration is an examination of learning through experience; or encounters with the physical environment that challenge one to consider the knowledge one holds in the new context presented by the place. The city and the landscape will be the main text and classroom. The course will explore what can be learned from the urban design of the city, and the patterns of life the design of the city supports.
