Animals have structures that are optimally suited for their functions.
Many human-made objects also have structures optimally suited for their
functions. This course will examine the similarities and differences
between the processes that shape the form and function of animals and the
form and function of human-made structures. Examples from art and
architecture will be compared to examples from biology. The course
will consists of lectures and discussion. There will be two exams, a writing
assignment, and a creative art project.
Designing, Creating, and Realizing, Logical Reasoning
