GRID 604 - Design Methods I

As a complement to the studio course (GRID 603), this course helps to develop the skills and methods required to realize successful design projects.  Put into practice, these “tools” enable and support a design process that is increasingly shared with other disciplines, facilitates collective learning, and produces actionable strategies for change. Special emphasis is placed on participant field research, system mapping, the development of design-orientated scenarios and the ability to communicate design thinking and concepts in a clear and compelling way. Content of the coursework comes directly from the studio projects.
