Design Methodology

Week One

This is a documentation of our first week of topic development and research. Our first task was to choose three issues to potentially solve. From those three, we had to choose one problem space to immerse ourselves in for 15 weeks and develop a holistic design solution. Our exploration methods involved mind mapping and tree diagraming.

Mind map exploring potential problem spaces
Diagram exploring “environment” as a problem space
Diagram further exploring specific environmental issues
Exploration into issues surrounding lack of awareness of political and world issues
Exploration of issues surrounding temporary housing for students during an internship

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
