Top reviews from Geodesign: Change Your World

By JVSep 28th 2018

This course is so well presented that it seems unlikely that even the most casual student won't learn essential principles of geodesign and be able to apply them to real life situations.

By APJun 10th 2019

Liked the guest lectures and the examples. Very apt case studies to help understand and learn from every week's main lecture.
