Deepen your awareness of Cornell landscapes and architecture

Since March, 2020, our awareness of our environment has been heightened. We must think about where we travel and how to navigate through space, and we are more engaged with the landscape as we endeavor to stay outdoors.

Using the Cornell campus as our reference point, this course will explore spaces of learning and living, healing and movement, memory, and survival. Each day, we'll consider one theme through suggested readings, case studies, and guest speakers.

Our goal is to learn from and celebrate architectural and spatial successes as well as to debate and imagine how our heightened awareness can inform the ways we experience the physical form of our present and future.
