89126 Design Studio 1: Human-centred Design

There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


This studio explores the voice of intent in relationship to the voice of experience as negotiated by the various voices of design practice. A human-centred approach to design is investigated with various scenarios and personas techniques used to shift the role of the user from a recipient to one of an author of design outcomes. Various methods of analysis, including ethnography, together with approaches to design synthesis are presented to allow the students an advanced understanding of real-world projects.
