Integrated Learning Liberal Arts course
Otis College of Art and Design / Liberal Arts and Sciences
Partner: Richard Riordan Central Library
Professor: Adam Berg
Mentor: Aaron Henne
LA Past Lives: A Virtual Architecture is an integrated learning interdisciplinary course geared at generating a creative on-line archival collage of LA communities which is both envisioned and invigorated by Otis design and art students with the intention to form a “living memory” of Los Angeles communities. Bunker Hill was the first site selected and this spring semester it is Chinatown.
In this integrated learning course we will re-construct past physical and social nexuses of neighborhoods/communities in LA; combining both architectural and design components and in as much art, cinema and private histories of present and past community members and their presence in the contemporary lives of people and communities. The course is based on a research work done in collaboration with the central library and culminates in the website and show project at the library’s rotunda.
LA Past Lives: A Virtual Architecture is generated by a group of students from various departments at Otis, such as:
-Digital media/3 D computer graphics
-Fashion/ Com. Design
