AAP Studio Talks, Spring 2021

Monday, May 10, 2021 at 8:00am to 12:00am


The primary objective of Studio Talks is to provide the faculty opportunity to diversify the voices and expand the important conversations embedded in the Option Studio. Framed as an opportunity for 'radical collaboration' – or the bringing in of alternative voices to advance creative thinking and meaningful innovation, these Studio Talks offer opportunities to introduce distinct perspectives and alternative readings, and perhaps unique technologies and/or methodologies, that open up the potentials of diverse and inclusive participatory design processes.

The following talks, workshops, and reviews have been curated and organized by the design faculty leading the Option Studios, and are open to the Cornell community. Many of the invited participants are from disciplines external to architecture and offer a parallel line of inquiry that serves to expand the studio's pedagogy while providing rich opportunities for collaborations across disciplines.
