ARCH 693 Workplaces
This course is about the design of places where people work. The workplace is important for many reasons. Not only do we spend a considerable amount of our waking life there, but our work often becomes one of the central features of our life. In some senses it can be considered to be a homelike activity; people often identify with their work and personalize their workplaces and make them responsive to their daily life needs. Workplaces are also social places where people meet and interact. And, of course they are also places of work, where they must respond to work needs and be conducive to efficient and productive work activities. This course will raise questions about how to design good workplaces. LEC.

The class is not offered for the Fall 2017 semester.

ARCH 694 Homeplaces
Architects design buildings and spaces which they hope will contribute to making significant, enriching, and rewarding places. The quality of places, however, is not identical to the quality of buildings which contribute to them. This course will explore ways in which physical environments, in this case, houses can become and be experienced as rich and embraced homeplaces. It will look at the various processes through which residents, dwellers, designers, real-estate agents, builders, and others are involved with home environments. Implications for design and production processes will be investigated with reference to particular case studies. LEC.

The class is not offered for the Fall 2017 semester.

ARCH 695 Internship Documentation
Students will document their experience in ARCH 691 or other approved internship or relevant work experience. The purpose of this course is to give students a structured opportunity to select, explore, research, and document a topic relevant to their internship experience and that goes beyond the work done for the internship credit.
