Course Description

Students take an in-depth look at design and society from the perspective of the designer. They learn about designers whose work has significantly influenced the built environment through a historical context. Students analyze the response of communities to technological, societal, and environmental changes. They examine how objects and spaces impact us: how and where we live, what we buy, what we view, and what we believe.

This course is open to all Langara students wishing to explore trends in design, as well as those intending to pursue studies in visual arts or considering careers in design.

This course is not a design studio and does not teach design skills.

Priority registration in this course is offered to students admitted to the Diploma in Design Formation.
