Personal Inquiry Projects

After our first week in the Netherlands, students had a weekend assignment, the “Personal Inquiry Project.” It is designed to allow the students to follow their own interest, connect it to the water system and cultural issues we are studying, and initiate a conversation with someone they don’t know during this process.

A variety of activities were undertaken, from recreational opportunities on the edges of Utrecht, to urban vegetation, canal typologies and wayfinding. Here is a link to download a combined .pdf of their work and a sampling of the title pages are below. Enjoy!
