89026 Transition Design Studio

Requisite(s): 89108c Transition Design Foundations
The lower case 'c' after the subject code indicates that the subject is a corequisite. See definitions for details.


In this subject, students undertake a Transition Design intervention putting together all that they have learned in the previous three subjects, mentored and critiqued by leading developers of transition design from around the world. Students tackle a wicked problem, finding a leverage point of entry; or students take up an existing community or organisational problem, with or without the current problem owners, and reframe the problem into a transition design strategy. A series of artefacts produced by each student as part of this studio research capstone project act as evidence of the student’s capacities as a transition designer. Students interrogate the most appropriate form of advocating for this strategy. In addition, students develop an ongoing network, connecting also with previous students, that allows them to operate as a loosely structured Transition Design collective, identifying ways in which separate projects that each might take up after the course can be mobilised into transitions by being connected to those of their colleagues.
