|Subject Overview:||When taken by a graduate student, the subject requires a higher level of understanding of the broader implications of design work. Graduate PED seeks to position and discuss architecture in relation to the world of production, economic interests and community benefits, at a local and global scale. The discussion has a strong comparative bend, and is coloured by the notion of innovation - what it means from a social, technical and cultural point of view, and how it enters and affects different building markets. Attention is directed at understanding the distinction between innovation on one side and invention and technological change on the other. In this context, architecture's connection with planning and building disciplines is examined and criticised in the attempt to formulate a strategic framework for its use as an environmental policy instrument. The research component seeks to apply the elements of this framework to specific situations chosen by the students in collaboration with the subject coordinator and in relation to their individual curriculum.|
