Course Description: This 2-hour/week seminar leads students through a process of framing projects concerned to build resilience in communities to adverse events that include but are not limited to earthquakes, droughts, wildfires, and the COVID-19 pandemic. Using the D-Lab 4-lens framework (social, environmental, economic, and technical), student teams will work on real-world projects to create design briefs addressing the client’s needs. All assignments and presentation preparation will be completed in class.
Deliverables: Presentation at the end of the course and a final project brief submission. The final project brief submission will be composed of multiple small assignments. All assignments and presentation preparation will be completed in class. Grades will be assigned either Pass or No Pass. (Subject to Change)
