During Seminar Week, students will travel to RIO DE JANEIRO as an integral part of the MOBILIZE BRAZIL design studio. This trip will be an opportunity to advance research and understand the city and the site; it will be an opportunity to expand analysis, challenge conventional understandings, and test conceptual prototypes. This week will not only serve as a vital step in the conceptual development of the project theses, but also as a critical study of the architecture, urbanism, culture, social exchange, and mobility in Rio de Janeiro.
