Design Activism Studios: The IUCI’s Design Activism Studios are based in the University of Washington’s Department of Landscape Architecture. During studios, students gain abstract knowledge of the contextual conditions of Lomas de Zapallal and explore creative, integrated approaches to urban infrastructure and multifunctional public space. The studios adopt the IUCI’s  emergent| convergent approach to design and students work at multiple scales concurrently. They complete two interdependent assignments over the course of the quarter: Incremental Interventions and Integrated Landscapes
