IDES 401 - Studio 5: Projects Studio

3 credits
These studio courses focus on decisive and responsible positions in formulating new design directions. Building upon past learning, projects sharpen fundamental skills of sketching (2D & 3D), design drawing, computer modeling, prototyping and conceptual diagramming. Students are encouraged through critical discourse and research on historical and contemporary material of cultural shifts to formulate their own ideology. Project proposals forward questions such as social context, ergonomics, and ecological consequences. Students are expected to identify local stakeholders (industry, users, designers, etc.) and ask them to be topic advisors as appropriate. First-semester projects are dedicated to three fast-paced, highly theoretical, predefined topics. The next semester is devoted to further development of one of these projects. This final semester-long project works toward project closure and pragmatic articulation, ready to be shown both inside and outside an academic context.

Prerequisites IDES*302, IDES*322, IDES*331, and IDES*332
