First-year studio (Foundation Design)
Professors: Andrew Tripp (coordinator); Jacob Gines; Todd Walker, FAIA
Studio Assistant: Finas Townsend III
The first semester of design one is divided into three modules:
1.  “Drawing Intensive” – For the first seven weeks students are challenged to develop a rigorous but critical creative process through a variety of black and white freehand drawing assignments.

2.  “Rotation around a void” – The next three weeks are spent on a three-dimensional composition exercise designed to challenge and condition a student’s ability to conceive and represent space.  The conventions of architectural representation (including model making, plan, elevation, section and axonometric drawing are introduced in this module.

3.  “Time tables” – The final weeks of this semester are dedicated to fostering an elementary understanding of siting.  Students are asked to document and analyze a typical place and purpose and to create a series of drawings.  At the final review, this project will only be in progress.  It will not be completed until spring semester.”

Second-year studio (Tectonic Studio I)
Professors: Hans Herrmann, AIA (coor dinator); Emily McGlohn
The second-year studio will be presenting design proposals for the composition, material palette logic, detailing / tectonic considerations, methods of installation and finishing for the floating ceiling of the Oktibbeha County Heritage Museum, Green Building Demonstration Pavilion.  The students will present individual schematic designs along with a single, full-scale built design. The designs will be presented via digital and physical means of representation.

Third-year studio (Mixed-use multi-family Housing – Chicago)
Professors: Alexis Gregory, AIA (coordinator); Jane Britt Greenwood, AIA, Justin Taylor
The third-year studio is designing a mixed-use, multi-family housing project on three different sites in Chicago, Ill.

Fourth-year studio (Topical Studios: Gulf Coast) 
Professors: Rachel McCann, Ph.D (coordinator); Frances Hsu, Ph.D.
Fourth-year students will present on Topical Studios: Gulf Coast.

Fifth-year studio (Urban+ Conceptual Projects) 
Professors: Jassen Callender (coordinator); Mark Vaughan
In the first five weeks, fifth-year students worked in four large groups to create master plan proposals for the future development of the fairgrounds in Jackson.

Individually, in the middle five weeks of the semester, half of the students are developing wooden ‘seeing’ frames, which correct for some aspect of the tendency of knowledge to short circuit full-fledged vision; the other half of the students are working with ‘language’ and developing a new graphic means of conveying spoken English. (They are reading Seeing Is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees and Rousseau’s Social Contract, respectively). In addition, students are working in ‘seeing/language’ pairs to develop proposals for retrofitting/improving an existing street wall in downtown Jackson.

In the final five weeks, students will continue to work in ‘seeing/language’ pairs to more fully develop a single street wall of their choice from one of the master plans.
