Spacing is a valuable course for those interested in black studies and conceptual architecture, but the course is time-heavy. I often found myself glancing at the clock more than I'd like to in any class. I also found the discussions to often feel forced and too long. I would not take this course again, but I know there are students who would find a lot of joy in it.

There are a few writing assignments but they're all <1 page and not super analytical. The main assignments are to make 3d objects (mainly out of cardboard) with vague/open prompts. You can make this class what you want it to be - you can get and A by pretty easily with bare min effort, so if you need an art credit or an easy/chill fourth class, this is it. If you're genuinely interested in the material or the process of creation, it could definitely be fulfilling as well - readings are thought-provoking and you'll have ample time to discuss them in class, and projects can mean as much or as little to you as you want them to.

I took this class because I am interested in architecture I wanted to learn about abolitionist architecture, but after the whole class I still couldn't tell you what that is. The class material is as wishy-washy and abstract as the description is. It combines two subjects that are seemingly unconnected and then forces speculative connections between them.
