Explores the history, design, and materiality of furniture. Analyses of materials and joinery-connective systems are developed in parallel with ergonomic restraints. Design transformation occurs through cycles of conceptual alternatives (models and drawings), increasing in scale as the idea evolves. Full-scale prototypes and detailed tectonic drawings are required on three pieces. Multiple enrollment under different course offering numbers is not allowed.
