Hours & Credits
Building on the design skills learned in the first stage, this studio introduces increasingly complex private
and communal spaces in an urban/suburban context. Students test the design process through a series of projects
each starting with research on related topics, precedents and site analysis, proceeding further to conceptual
design and masterplanning / detailed design. Students continue to observe, understand and record the landscape
through a 4 days study trip to a European city at the beginning of the semester followed by a series of short
field trips to sites of cultural and ecological interest in the Dublin area.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
