This fall, Spacing contributor Laura Kozak will be teaching Urban Cartography at Emily Carr University of Art + Design .
Learn to critically read and record the underlying geometry, overlapping histories and multiple agendas of the city through practices of mapping,measuring and sketching. Using architectural and cartographic tools and techniques, students in this course will work at multiple and nested scales to understand the metrics behind what makes neighbourhoods different, how we move through the city, and how the built environment has taken shape.
The final outcome of the course will be a critical and technically drafted cartographic drawing. This is a beginner course aimed to introduce urban inhabitants to ways of reading the city and understanding it through processes of measuring and mapping. Students may include those with an interest in Vancouver history or urban change, or students looking to build an architecture or design portfolio.
