This subject offers the student the opportunity to fully comprehend the value of design and gain a potential sense of meaning to what they do. Thought and the translation of an idea are both investigated in a text and design outcome. Group and individual projects help to advance the need for clarity of communications and for negotiated settlement. The project explores how design thinking allows for a resiliency of outcomes in the design world and ultimately considers the importance of sustainability. The aesthetic act allows for a space of value in society, a value that has to be recognised. The recognition of how creative practice can constantly re-invent itself in reference to how it engages with the problem allows for a resiliency of design.
