Conversations about design

George speaks with Henrik Fisker, the first guest of Fall 2013.


George Thrush, the Director of the School of Architecture, is teaching a class this fall called Understanding Design. The course exposes students to the world’s leading thinkers and designers in fields as varied as software, business, entertainment, branding, information design, and all manner of communication. Top designers and innovators will explain how they solve multiple challenges at once, and how design thinking brings so much value to the contemporary marketplace.

George first taught Understanding Design in the spring of 2013. All of the classes were recorded, and can be viewed on the class’ official site.

The NU Core course (Arts Level 1) is open to all Northeastern students, and captures the essence of the University’s interdisciplinary approach to education.
