Disc*2020 (Design & Innovation for Sustainable Cities) is a five week summer program for currently enrolled college students that explores an interdisciplinary and multi-scalar approach to design and analysis in the urban environment. Now, more than ever, there is a need for Resilient Design and Planning in our cities in response to the unprecedented challenges of the global pandemic, climate change, and social inequities. Disc* brings together interdisciplinary students and expert practitioners from around the world to reframe these challenges as opportunities for design innovation. As we move to remote learning this summer, we will utilize immersive technology including virtual and augmented reality to explore the latent potential digital platforms for creativity and collaboration. Disc* will combine online visual communication tools with seminars and digital workshops, synchronously and asynchronously, to create a cohesive and rigorous learning environment that is accessible to every student. No prior design experience is necessary. View more View full description
