About this Unit
From 2016 this unit will be replaced by 301084 Design Studio 6: Ambience, Place and Behaviour. Design Studio explores the strategies for Industrial Design within the complex and contradictory context of operating as designers in late-industrial cultures. The complexity of designing in Australia for a global economy with local peculiarities will be studied with a particular emphasis on designing for users who are increasingly difficult to know. These same users are also demanding more protection from goods and services they consume and demonstrate increasing doubts about the claims that advertisers make. These factors are bringing new issues into the Industrial Design context. Product innovation with an emphasis on rapid prototyping will form the basis of assessment in this unit.
