About this Unit
Designers prescribe the use of our limited materials resources with every product that transpires from their work. With an informed approach to design, based on a sound knowledge of materials from their origins to their disposal as well how those materials are utilised in existing contexts of use, a designer can maximise the positive impact of their designing on local and global communities. In this unit students will develop an understanding of the central importance of design in developing a more sustainable world on both production and consumption sides. They will reflect critically on their role as both designers and end-users and will exercise their creative intuition to confidently generate and present designs for sustainability. The aim of the unit is to enhance students ecological literacy and perception of sustainability as a creative opportunity.
