ENG 1101: Seeing, Saying Showing: An Introduction to Writing and the Visual Culture of New York

ENG 1101: Seeing, Saying Showing: An Introduction to Writing and the Visual Culture of New York

English Composition I is a course designed to introduce you to college writing through an exploration of New York City and the rich and varied stories and perspectives of the people who have made it their home. Drawing on readings from a wide variety of genres—as well as your own experience and knowledge—we will investigate the physical space of New York City as well as it’s history, literature and visual culture to explore the relationship between place & identity. In doing so, we will also engage with current debates about gentrification, housing, transportation and public space as they impact people’s lives in the city. In doing so, we will explore the concept of the “right to the city” as it relates to New York City and our own (and others) lives within it. Through the various writing assignments you complete for this class, you will develop effective essay writing and basic research techniques, including the use of the library, digital media, ethnography, archives, oral histories, the streets and your imagination.

ARCH1101.470: Introduction to Architecture

ARCH1101.470: Introduction to Architecture

The study of architecture begins by developing a visual literacy of the built environment. Using New York City as a living laboratory, students explore concepts of design, composition, and construction in the context of the city by sketching and writing about their direct experience of buildings. Accompanying lectures focus on freehand drawing techniques, concepts of composition, writing about buildings and their construction, and reading architectural drawings. As a co-requisite of Design Foundations and a pre-requisite of Building Technology and architecture history, students are exposed to various styles of architecture and methods of construction found in the city. Along with developing graphic skills, students will build the basic foundation to talk, write, and graphically express architecture and its construction.

ARCH1101 Introduction to Architecture, SP2018

ARCH1101 Introduction to Architecture, SP2018

The Introduction to Architecture provides a foundation for students entering the BArch / BTech program to develop a “visual literacy” of the built environment. Using New York City as a living laboratory, students explore concepts of design, composition, and construction in the context of the city through their direct experience of buildings. By practicing the basic skills of drafting, sketching, and reading about buildings, and with the opportunity to present their understandings to others through written assignments and verbal presentations, students will develop methods of representing and presenting architecture verbally and graphically.

Open Educational Resources: ARCH1121- History of World Architecture to 1900

Open Educational Resources: ARCH1121- History of World Architecture to 1900

This historical survey of architecture covers the period from early civilizations to the arrival of the Industrial Revolution. Architecture is understood as an expression of the culture and life of a society, and each class session considers architectures from around the world within their social, historical, and spatial contexts. While the history of Western architecture is covered from the Egyptian to the Enlightenment, a special focus is directed to the architectures of the Far East, South Asia, Africa, pre-Columbian Latin America, the Islamic World, and elsewhere to provide a comprehensive overview of the richness and diversity of architecture as a cultural artifact.
