Good Design Matters.

It touches everything around us. It drives innovation. And it has the power to make life better for everyone.

From the Desk of Dean Mark Hoversten

We are excited to welcome several new faculty and staff to our ranks this semester, and regretfully plan for the retirement of some of our beloved faculty.

Mark Hoversten

We make sense of the world for the benefit of the public. Our rigorous programs prepare students to develop solutions that serve the greater good, and our research has life-changing impact.

Mark Johnson, of Denver-based @civitasinc, will present the annual Charles H. Burger Lecture on Wednesday, September 22 at 6:00 pm in Burns Auditorium. The lecture will also be broadcast live over Zoom.

In this lecture, entitled "Finding the Missing Landscape", Mark Johnson will reflect on the increased value of connected green places resulting from the pandemic. Green connectivity, green infrastructure, and green mosaics are no longer a desire or even a need, they are imperative to support public health, mitigate climate impacts and urban heat island conditions. 

This discussion will show a range of efforts to improve green connectivity across North America in urban locations. The landscapes that are missing are the ones we pass through but do not identify as whole places - threads, patches and voids that have neither social nor ecological identity or integrity. 🔗 in bio!

Fire up the kiln! Or, rather, the printer!

In Architectural Ceramic Fabrication (ARC 590) taught by professor Shawn Protz, students are tasked with applying 3D printing techniques to traditional North Carolina ceramic crafting. 

Through algorithmic modeling, digital fabrication, hands-on making, observation, collection and discussion, the course spans the history and techniques from native makers and folk potters to emerging digital systems.

As students return to campus for the first time in over a year, it's understandable that reacclimating to life at the College of Design can be a challenge. 

Jenny Tiet started a completely new position at the college in April with the mission of providing support to students experiencing academic difficulty and working with student organizations to help the design students feel a sense of community

We spoke with Jenny on what it means to advise a community of creatives, what services are available for students and her mission at the college. 🔗in bio!
