  • Audrey Wollen is a feminist theorist and visual artist based in Los Angeles. Wollen uses social media, such as Twitter and Instagram, as platforms for her work on Sad Girl Theory, a theory which posits that internalized female sadness can be used as a radical and political action, separate from masculinized forms of protests such as anger and violence. She introduces this form of protest as an alternative to masculinized anger and violence.

Architecture / Landscape / Interiors

Architecture (buildings), landscape (spaces between buildings), and interiors (spaces within buildings) organize and shape the contexts for all our activities and relations. Students in this multidisciplinary program study all three of these spatial design fields within a single, sequential curriculum, focused on design empowered by technologies and theory. At the core of the curriculum are six comprehensive studio courses, five of which address potentially real-world projects sited in Los Angeles and other cities. Support courses present the materials and methods of building, landscape, and interior construction; physical and digital communication skills and media; and the history and theories of spatial design.

Foundation Forward 2015: Architecture/Landscape/Interiors from Otis College of Art and Design on Vimeo.

Each year, A/L/I seniors design and build a full-scale spatial environment in their final semester. See the design, fabrication and installation of several A/L/I environments on our YouTube Playlist HERE.

We welcome and support transfer students at first and second-semester sophomore, and junior levels! First-semester sophomores and juniors may start in fall or spring semester. Second-semester sophomores may start in spring or summer semester. Download Articulation Charts for Sophomore, 2nd-Semester Sophomore, and Junior level transfer courses available at many California colleges.

The quality of the Architecture/Landscape/Interiors major is affirmed by our Advanced-standing Agreements, which allow graduates to start in the second year of three-year Master of Architecture I programs. Several A/L/I alumi have earned their Master of Architecture degrees in this manner: Jesus Aguilar (UIC 2016), Dolly Davis (UIC 2011), Justin Kim (USC 2013), and Sam Tanis (UIC 2013). Boo Y. Yang began Master of Landscape Architecture studies with advanced standing at the University of Washington, Seattle, this fall, 2016.
