ｗe will focus on three sections：
(1). Self and Environment [Family trees and Personal Sustainability: Claiming ownership for my sustainable identity] (home and garden) It focuses on the time and place to be with self (our individual identities), and the time and place to be with our family (our home identities). You will investigate your family trees from your parents’ sides. And, you will also choose a sustainable place representing your self and re‐interpret your feeling of this place through artistic and creative processes and products.
(2). Friends of Landscape, Friends of Life (family, community, cross‐cultural living) This phase is the core of the class. It focuses on the time and place to be with self (our individual identities), and the time and place to be with our family (our home identities). You will schematically design a coop home with your partners in a foreign country.
(3). Transkathon Urban-Rural Linkages (Co-making real-virtual places and local/global networks). It addresses the time and place to communicate with others in our neighborhoods while many new comers around the world move into our local areas (community identities). During this phase, you will work with a urban community, rural town or village in Taiwan or abroad. We will explore your projects in advance after semester starts.
