DSGN 395: Chicago Design Immersion

Quarter Offered

Fall : Mondays 2 – 5 p.m., Ford Design Studio 1 ; Pam Daniels, Hemant Jha


Chicago is a vibrant hub of design, innovation, and creativity. In this course, we will immerse in the city's rich design culture by engaging with local designers and visiting Chicago-area makerspaces, social-impact design firms, manufacturers, museums, cultural centers, and innovation hubs.

If you’re eager to explore the world-class city at our feet and the spaces where the future is being created, this class is for you! We’ll reflect on our experiences in a range of ways and class will culminate in a design showcase with plenty of opportunity for creative freedom.

Course is by permission only and previous design experience is required. Interested? Send a note to explaining a bit about you and what intrigues you about the class.

Please note that class will depart from campus in Evanston.
