“Start up” (the name of my building) is a non profit incubator that will attract people interested in the field of the arts. In the heart of Brooklyn, it will gather new entrepreneurs that are willing to start up a new business, such as dance schools, theatre arts classes, and more. It is located in BAM; Brooklyn academy of music, a multi arts center where these entrepreneurs can further expand their business two years after they stabilize it at Startup. Startup will bring together artists from Brooklyn and all around the world and give them the incentive to start new business.
Learning to see beyond the constraints of design as a discipline and practice can provide the
spark essential to innovation and change.
The Global Studio project encourages you to bring the tools, methodologies, and approaches
discussed in Global Issues to your own work, whether you come from a design, management,
or liberal arts background.
Consider your primary studio work or core focus for the semester. If you are a fashion
designer what is the focus of your collection, if you are a photographer what is your subject, a
product designer – who is your user?
Building on the readings, lectures, and your original research, identify an aspect of your work
that will benefit from a closer look at issues ofglobalization considered in our class and
develop this into a critically engaged studio project.
You will begin this project in steps, first submitting a topic idea, followed by a thesis statement
and preliminary bibliography, and then a descriptive outline and/or paper draft.
These preparatory research steps will culminate in a final 5-7 page paper about your project
Written from a thematic and critical perspective. This paper will be accompanied by a visual
presentation of your studio work given to your recitation group during the final weeks of class.
