CEE 32A. Psychology of Architecture. 3 Units.

This course argues that architecture often neglects the interdisciplinary investigation of our internal psychological experience and the way it impacts our creation of space. How does our inner life influence external design? How are we impacted emotionally, physically, psychologically by the spaces we inhabit day to day? How might we intentionally imbue personal and public spaces with specific emotions? This seminar serves as a call to action for students interested in approaching architecture with a holistic understanding of the emotional impact of space. Sample topics addressed will include: conscious vs. unconscious design; the ego of architecture; psycho-spatial perspectives; ideas of home; integral/holistic architecture; phenomenology of inner and outer spaces; exploring archetypal architecture; and translating emotion through environment.

CEE 32B. Design Theory. 4 Units.

This seminar focuses on the key themes, histories, and methods of architectural theory -- a form of architectural practice that establishes the aims and philosophies of architecture. Architectural theory is primarily written, but it also incorporates drawing, photography, film, and other media. nnOne of the distinctive features of modern and contemporary architecture is its pronounced use of theory to articulate its aims. One might argue that modern architecture is modern because of its incorporation of theory. This course focuses on those early-modern, modern, and late-modern writings that have been and remain entangled with contemporary architectural thought and design practice. nnRather than examine the development of modern architectural theory chronologically, it is explored architectural through thematic topics. These themes enable the student to understand how certain architectural theoretical concepts endure, are transformed, and can be furthered through his/her own explorations.

CEE 32D. Construction: The Writing of Architecture. 4 Units.

This seminar focuses on the construction of architectural writing. The class will analyze this idea through four topics: formal analysis, manifesto, translation, and preservation. The seminar is divided into two-week modules with each of these four concepts functioning as organizing principles. nnThe first week of each module will involve familiarizing the seminar with both the terms and rhetorical tactics of the given theme by reading and analyzing specific texts and completing a short written analysis (1-2 pages). The second week will expand upon this foundation and involve further analysis in addition to each student writing a short paper (3-4 pages) drawing on the examples discussed and their own experiences in the discipline. The goal of the seminar is for each student to be able to analyze how an architectural writing is constructed and to develop his/her skills in the construction of his/her own writing.

Additional background for understanding contemporary place making will include a critique of the history of modern place-making through an examination of modern form. Part II examines two traditional notions of place by scale: from "home" to "the city." What elements give these conceptions of space a sense of place? To answer this question, themes such as memory, mapping, and boundary, among others, will be investigated. part III presents challenges to the traditional notions of place discussed in Part II. Topics addressed include: What does it mean to be "out of place"? What sense of place does a nomad have, and how is this represented? What are the "non-places" and how can architects design for these spaces? Part IV addresses the need to re-conceptualize contemporary space. The role of digital and cyber technologies, the construction of locality in a global world, and the in-between places that result from a world in flux are topics discussed in this section of the seminar. nLearning goals: Specific goals include clsoe reading of texts, understanding of philosophical thinking and writing, argument under uncertainty, and developed concepts of place, space and architecture.

CEE 134C. Design Approaches to Mending a City: Rethinking the 101 in East Palo Alto. 4 Units.

The omnipresence of automobile infrastructure negotiating the urban, suburban, and rural landscapes emphasizes the prioritization of this mode of transportation in the United States. Although the overlap of highway and urban area is sometimes addressed (and re-addressed), it tends to create sub-districts, fragmentation, and unnecessary conditions of separation. nnWhile serving as an important circulation network on the west coast, connecting Los Angeles to Seattle, the infrastructure of Highway 101 cuts through various communities, at times creating division at the local scale. One of the more marked manifestations of this division is in East Palo Alto, where the highway separates residents on the west side from schools and activities on the east side, acting as a barrier that must be navigated by car. nnThis studio aims to articulate the issues created by the presence of the highway and study design solutions that not only mitigate the presence of these two systems (highway and community) at a general level, but develop strategic approaches to the issues facing the specific area. In this regard, students will engage with the site, community members, and local officials.

The American economy is highly inefficient: between 14-39% of the energy inputs into the US economy are ultimately used to create goods and services, while the remaining energy is lost in energy conversion and other inefficiencies. While this inefficiency results in a heavy social, environmental, and economic burden on both individuals and society as a whole, it also presents an tremendous opportunity to re-imagine how we use and manage our energy consumption. Recent technological advances, including the rise of information technology, sensors, controls, are dramatically re-shaping how energy is utilized, controlled, stored and integrated with traditional supply side resources. These emerging technologies and energy management techniques provide some of the greatest opportunities to improve the efficiency of our economy and address climate change.This course begins with an overview of demand side management (the application of efficiency, demand reduction, distributed generation, storage, and other resource to shape energy demand) practice to date and a detailed look at how energy is used throughout each sector of the economy. Based on this starting point, the course explores emerging technologies and optimization strategies that enable greater insight and control of energy use both at the device and aggregate level, including integration with renewables, storage, and electric vehicles. It then quantifies and monetizes these optimization strategies into revenue streams to both utility and end-user, and culminates in a discussion of how the intersection of these new technologies, optimization strategies, and revenue streams can help de-carbonize the American economy and shape energy use and the utility of the future. Prerequisites: This course is intended for students who wish to gain an understanding of how energy efficiency and demand management occurs in practice.

CEE 276C. Advanced Topics in Integrated Demand Side Management. 2 Units.

The American economy is highly inefficient: between 14-39% of the energy inputs into the US economy are ultimately used to create goods and services, while the remaining energy is lost in energy conversion and other inefficiencies. While this inefficiency results in a heavy social, environmental, and economic burden on both individuals and society as a whole, it also presents an tremendous opportunity to re-imagine how we use and manage our energy consumption. Recent technological advances, including the rise of information technology, sensors, controls, are dramatically re-shaping how energy is utilized, controlled, stored and integrated with traditional supply side resources. These emerging technologies and energy management techniques provide some of the greatest opportunities to improve the efficiency of our economy and address climate change.This course begins with an overview of demand side management (the application of efficiency, demand reduction, distributed generation, storage, and other resource to shape energy demand) practice to date and a detailed look at how energy is used throughout each sector of the economy. Based on this starting point, the course explores emerging technologies and optimization strategies that enable greater insight and control of energy use both at the device and aggregate level, including integration with renewables, storage, and electric vehicles. It then quantifies and monetizes these optimization strategies into revenue streams to both utility and end-user, and culminates in a discussion of how the intersection of these new technologies, optimization strategies, and revenue streams can help de-carbonize the American economy and shape energy use and the utility of the future. Prerequisites: This course is intended for students who wish to gain an understanding of how energy efficiency and demand management occurs in practice.
