85702 Interdisciplinary Design Lab

12cp; 6hpw, on campus, Fridays.
Requisite(s): 85502 Researching Design Histories AND 85503 Thinking Through Design



In this subject, design is conceived of in its widest and most exciting sense; as an agent for change in a complex world. The aim of the interdisciplinary design labs (DLabs) is to connect students with live research projects led by staff across the design school. The DLabs offer students from all disciplines a diverse range of exciting projects, often with partners from industry or the community, which engage with real-life problems and opportunities. The DLabs focus on problems that require an interdisciplinary design approach, and develop students' skills in collaboration and teamwork. The emphasis of this subject is on experimentation and innovation. The DLabs aim to prepare students for future developments in the design professions.
