This is the first part of the Final Project where students will make the choice of a domain/subject/area to work in; have a chance to explore multiple approaches through workshops; complete a literature survey and fact-finding in their chosen field and articulate a design brief. Domain exploration will include a series of workshops on Design methods, research methods and writing.
This project is a comprehensive investigation of a particular issue or problem to explore opportunities for intervention identified through the initial workshops, which would manifest in a design project that engages the symbiotic relationships between the social and material inhabited world.
Students will be actively encouraged to choose projects at an organizational scale and the final project would culminate with the student being able to demonstrate how their project can achieve social change. The nature of projects, while being located in real life, can be either supported by a client/organization or independent proposals with potential for implementation. This might lead up to either a focused internship with an organization relevant to the chosen domain or a series of monitored interventions during the summer break between Semester 4 and 5.
