Application deadlines are fast approaching for CED's immersive summer courses, Disc* (Design & Innovation for Sustainable Cities) and Summer [IN]STITUTE in Environmental Design.
Disc*2016 joined others selected for the 2030 Curriculum Project, that called Disc "...one of the 7 Best Sustainable Design Courses in America". Buildng on that success, Disc*2017 co-director Gabriel Kaprielian says, "We have an amazing program planned for Disc* participants this summer. The studio will focus on environmental and social resiliency, using the Bay Area urban region as a laboratory for experimenting with new solutions for adaptation in urban environments." Kaprielian says that the Disc* course will challenge its participants to "reframe the problems of the built environment, so we can begin to innovate our approach to design."
Summer [IN]STITUTE alumni have also had reason to be optimistic. Recent graduates of the program have been admitted for the fall master's programs at Harvard School of Design, University of Pennsylvania Masters in Landscape Architecture, University of Washington, University of Texas, UCLA, Cornell University, Columbia University, UC Berkeley's College of Environmental Design and University of Virginia.
A project by an [IN]CITY student team was also prominently featured in the City of Oakland's recently published "Resilient Oakland Playbook", a strategy document developed to help Oakland tackle systemic and structural challenges.
