It is a response to our students' requests for a "handout" and to l our colleagues' inquiries about the courses : Visual and Environmental Studies 175 (Introduction to Design Science), YES 176 (Synergetics, the Structure of Ordered Space), Studio Arts 125a (Design Science Workshop, Two-Dimension al), Studio Arts 125b (Design Science Workshop, Three-Dimensional),2 as well as my freshman seminars on Structure in Science and Art.
