Design Principles: A Design Thinking and Solving Workshop
We dwell in a designed world. Almost everything around us is constructed thereby making the environments we live in manufactured ones. Therefore one can say that we are all inherently designers. Yet what is the essence of design? What are its underlying principles and how does design differ from the arts? Whether you are interested in architecture, interior design, product design or landscape, this workshop aims to introduce the basic principles of design thinking and solving. A series of short lectures will precede engaging exercises that challenge the mind and introduce new methods of abstract thinking. You will learn how to develop concepts, identifying problems that you will begin to answer with various design solutions and pushing the limits of creativity by setting parameters.
The workshop is open to all backgrounds and anyone aged 16 and older.
