授業の概要・目的 English is the global working language of arts and science, as well as in international project collaborations. Japanese architectural design sensibilities are well sought after overseas. On the other hand, prominent clients likes to employ international talents to provide a view outside the box. Being able to lead a discussion in English with people from all backgrounds, as well as honing and communicating one’s unique sensibilities, would be an important skill to survive in a global changing environment.

In this class we will go through the different studies of architecture in English, writing and presenting short essays on our way. The final project will be a group proposal and presentation on “a Memorial”.
