Visual Arts and the Built Environment [VABE] is a unique program between the School of Creative Arts at the University of Windsor (Windsor, Ontario) and the School of Architecture at the University of Detroit Mercy (Detroit, Michigan).
Alexane Chiasson talks about the VABE program, and the unique opportunities it offers students who have an interest in both art, and architecture.
VABE brings together students and faculty from both schools to approach the design of the built environment as artist and architect.
By crossing the boundaries of these traditionally separated professions, students learn to examine the built environment from the perspective of aesthetics, creativity, social culture, construction, utility, meaning, and history. Visit the VABE Projects website.
