INDD 310 - S031: Core Studio Industrial Design

Course content: 

Topic: Design With More-Than-Human Species
This course encompasses design with more-than-humans, indigenous perspectives, and international collaboration, through a range of established and emerging design practices. How can we improve our relationships with other beings? The classroom will be outdoors, online from your homes, and on campus. Outdoor workshops will be created by students to teach students. Projects will be expanded and grounded through round table conversations with Connie Watts of the ECUAD Aboriginal Gathering Place. Toward the end of the semester, students will be sharing projects online with peers from the Otago Polytechnic in Dunedin, New Zealand who will be exploring design for species guardianship (called kaitiakitanga in Maori). Preliminary research will be structured and guided, but final projects will be self-directed through small group discussions and one-on-one meetings with faculty. This prepares students for independent work in 4th year. The course begins with students researching and choosing an animal or plant species that they will champion throughout the semester. They will research the health and needs of that being, the ecosystem they live within, and map the range of human activities that integrate with, impede, or support the flourishing of that species. They will then move to their self-directed final project, exploring a number of design approaches to improve human relationships with that species. Design projects or outcomes on behalf of the chosen species may encompass: Social Innovations for Sustainability (DESIS); Design for Behaviour Change; Site Interventions/installations; Speculative Design; Exhibition Design; Installation Design; Design as Storytelling; Design Activism; Other (as suggested by students, or as emergent from the process); And, of course… design as design.

INDD 310 - S032: Core Studio Industrial Design

Course content: 

Topic: Wood Product Design
Students in this course will work with local wood suppliers, manufacturers and retailers to develop “sustainable ready for market” furniture-based products or pre-fabricated wood products. Working in teams the students develop their designs through 2D and 3D iterations and there are three major critiques with external clients/ advisors throughout the full-term project. Final prototypes are 1:1 scale and students are expected to take their design and execution to a high level of resolution support by extensive technical demos.

INDD 310 - S033: Core Studio Industrial Design

Course content: 

Topic: Disruption and Clothing
This 3rd year core studio invites students to consider and explore the connections and roles of clothing and disruption in our current context. Content and work done by students will draw and build on research, perspectives and insights garnered through local ECU initiatives such as the cloTHING(s) as Conversation research project, the Material Matters TARP ( textile adaptation research program), the Fall 2020 Fibreshed Field school. International initiatives such as Fashion Revolution, Earth Logic and the Union of Concerned Researchers in Fashion will also inform the work. Clothing and the global fashion design/production system (assumed longstanding prototyping strategies and production processes) will be interrogated. New propositions (cloth based artifacts and systems of making clothing) that respond to needs of care for the planet, care for the places we live and the people we live with will be collectively envisaged. Along with speculative scenarios, storytelling and hands on making the course will also be an opportunity to learn and apply CLO, a digital drafting platform used increasingly in the industry context to envisage clothes and create patterns for sample/prototypes and manufacture.
