This course is so well presented that it seems unlikely that even the most casual student won't learn essential principles of geodesign and be able to apply them to real life situations.
It broadened my thinking on how we can approach solution in the built environment.
The course is very well organized and provides a great overview of geodesign.
Great class, fun and a thorough treatment of geodesign!
