The subject of this experimental course held at Harvard GSD, with the students of Harvard and MIT, is to see the potential of interaction between the two disciplines from these two schools. Hanif Kara of AKT, engineering designer who has long experience in constructing innovative buildings in terms of architecture and engineering, through the close collaboration with distinguished architects, leads the class, insist-ing on the importance of each professional fields but trying to erode the borders and boundaries between them. Through the analysis of case studies, of essays written by experienced professionals and participating students, together with projects designed as a group at the course, we will explore the real demand and agenda of education in architectural and engineering design today, and also how to train experts to learn know how to collaborate be-tween the two disciplines.
