quote from Milton Glaser, a famous designer, suggests that design "moves things from an existing condition to a preferred one." By using design as a problem-solving tool, we can create a preferred world where both humans and nature can thrive. Design thinking can be applied to any problem that has multi-facetted challenges. In this class students will be guided though a visualization process for developing concepts using design thinking. Students aesthetic and materials choices will be explored through the creation of a functional, appealing design. Using preliminary sketches, delineated drawings, models, building plans and sections students will design of a small house based on regenerative principles.
