An ability to understand and navigate the metropolitan condition is the common denominator for those wishing to lead in our fields. The T.O. superstudio is an opportunity for architecture, landscape and urban design students to discover shared concerns, approaches and design solutions, and to model the kinds of collaborative, creative and technical processes required to successfully address the complex demands (political, social, cultural, environmental, formal, infrastructural, etc.) of urban projects today, and into the future. Second year graduate students in architecture and landscape, and advanced, incoming urban design students work on the same set of assignments throughout the semester. Students from each discipline bring a unique focus to the course's set of urban-scale exercises, identifying discipline-specific concerns that will be shared across the whole cohort of “super” studio students.
