Spring 2017: March Session: How to Read the City and Other Things

Sun 12 Mar - Wed 5 Apr' 17

The March Session offered a brilliant, diverse lineup of global faculties.

The city is a complex organism lending to multiple readings and interpretations. The city is also a vast visual landscape that is traversed and sorted out visually and kinesthetically. Seminars and workshops dealt with the physiognomic nature of the visual field and how it reflects human perception about what is significant and valuable. With the March Session, BI continued exploring the fundamentals of human settlements, suggesting the importance of shifting our focus to large scale design situations that includes cities, landscapes and settlements.
