Cross-Sections reviews are a unique format of review foster discourse between different sections of any single studio. They occur in each program, within both the Core and Advanced Curricular areas of those programs and typically at least once a semester. The intention of these reviews is to allow students and faculty to gain a wider view of Directed Research, the approach toward design research and comparative methods across each studio that brings to the fore parallel (but different) issues/conversations to those commonly found in a conventional review format. Often these reviews include outside guests and/or may be used by students or faculty as a vehicle to facilitate collaborations and/or informal peer to peer networks.
