|SUST 660 - SUSTAINABILITY STUDIO|
The purpose of the Sustainability Studio is to provide an experiential, project based lecture/lab space where participants can explore and develop the complex skills and abilities needed for implementing sustainability. Each year, a site specific real-world project is designated as the context for student teams to do real sustainability work using the collaborative and interdisciplinary approach characteristic of sustainable practice.
An RFP for this porject is issued by your real client during the first week. The class must then form itself into a sustainability consulting group, preparing a proposal to "win" the contract. It must then complete all contracted "deliverables" on schedule.
We will follow the stages of collaborative Sustainability Practice: Scoping, Assessment, Planning, Intervention Design and Intervention. Each stage involves collaboration, presentation, mutual learning and opportunities for you to maximize your growth.
In keeping with the studio format, frequent presentations and interactive critique sessions will be organized to help guide both the design process and its outcomes. Your clients, visitors from the community, experts and other Ramapo faculty may join some of these events for their input during the project and their feedback at its conclusion.
