About this Unit
This unit prepares students to be flexible and innovative, with the emphasis placed on design, and its place in and effect on society and people. Students are challenged to respond to a real world design brief focusing on a specific user group and context-of-use. Students undertake desk, field and practical research in order to find design opportunities for detailed development in the second semester of the fourth year program. Peer learning is an important part of the learning experience, as is a user-centred design research approach and is facilitated by an intensive off-campus field trip in the project start-up phase.
