Interdisciplinary Studio London

During the Spring semester 2017 Diane Alshihabi (Interior Design) and Mikesch Muecke (Architecture) co-taught the first interdisciplinary studio, DSN S 546 Preservation & Cultural Heritage England: International Perspectives and Design Issues with students from architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture.

The eighteen students in the course collaborated on a project that involved the United States Department of State, Winfield House in London, and preservation experts, fostering international partnerships and advancing cultural heritage protection globally. More specifically we utilized cutting-edge technology (LIDAR scanning and digital photogrammetry) as well as conventional historic preservation methods to develop a web- and video-based narrative about Winfield House, the US Ambassador’s residence in London, England.
