Live from #CDW16 : The #futureofdesign is an educational and community project enabling 15 & 16 year old students to design and build a pavilion - with the aim of encouraging them to consider a future in the design industry #t 📷 @katietreggiden.1
Three tonnes of laser cut plywood make up this impressive pavilion, designed by GCSE students under the tutelage of local collective #ScaleRule . Now snaking its way around the Garden of St James at @clerkenwelldesignweek (📷: @scroge) #cdw2016#design#FutureOfDesign
This modest yet stunning #cabin overlooking beautiful views of #Washington ’s Puget Sound is a triumph of modern, environmentally sensitive #design . #Seattle -based MW works designed the Case Inlet Retreat for clients who had hiked, camped, and paddled on the 20-acre site for years and wanted a home that would forge a strong relationship with the land. The low-maintenance cabin beautifully delivers on the clients’ requirements and has since won several American Institute of Architects awards, including a 2016 National Honor Award. #architecture 📷 by: Jeremy Bittermann
CGTrader asked me to write an article about the Future of Design and all the exciting opportunities it's going to bring to consumers and designers alike! So What Does the #FutureofDesign Look Like? 🍃 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Human beings don’t have a pollution problem - they have a DESIGN problem. If we were to device products, tools, furniture, homes, factories and cities more intelligently from the start we wouldn’t need to think in terms of waste, contamination or scarcity. Now we design items for its first use, not its potential next uses after it breaks or goes out of style. Good design would allow for abundance, endless reuse and pleasure. This could move the dialog far beyond the simple interest of recycling. Designing the product that can become a NUTRIENT in the biosphere or stay in the techno sphere as a reusable metal or plastic after its first use. NATURE ITSELF designs this way!
The Southwest Chapter held it's 3rd Annual Student Design Charette - at Gould Evans on Saturday, November 4th, 2017. At this event (20) participating students were randomly divided into teams (5) and given a design challenge (floorplan, client, programming info, etc.). They were then tasked with coming up with a design solution in just over 5 hours. At then end each team was given 5 minutes to present their design to the group - including (3) jurors. The jurors deliberated and the winning teams were announced. It was a fun and challenging day of learning and collaboration for all who participated.
The winners, shown here, will advance to the IIDA Regional Student Design Charette in Portland, OR in April 2018 to represent our Chapter for a chance to advance to the International Student Design Charette in Chicago, IL in June 2018.
I love weekends because it gives me a chance to step back from the day to day of the business and work more “on the business” vs “in the business”. I’m also naturally more of an introvert so it gives me time to rejuvenate. .
So what kind of work do I actually do on the weekends? A lot of high-level strategy / big-picture type work, work on things that will really move the business forward, a lot of thinking about the future and opportunities (just having time and space to think is how I really am able to put pieces together), spend time “looking around the corner” (i.e. thinking about potential pitfalls, challenges, etc the company may face in the coming weeks, months, years), catch up on anything I didn’t get to from the previous week and prep for the upcoming week.
The color we've all been waiting for. Pantone has announced the Color of the Year for 2018, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet! The company describes the winner as a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, communicating originality, ingenuity and visionary thinking that points us to the future. [Photo: @pantone]
El germen de todo proyecto es la pregunta.
Un proceso se origina a partir de un interés lo suficientemente potente como para convertirse en un objetivo: El objetivo siempre es comprender. Y por suerte no tiene fin. Todo campo de conocimiento es expansivo. Comprender es la clave para convertir un conocimiento teórico en un conocimiento empírico. Activarlo, crear un comportamiento, un modo de hacer. Ponerlo en acción.

Loved RCA’s Dr. Paul Thompson’s Talk- he says “Universities are places for intellectual discomfort” and outlining the power of design- the future of education and design is in “STEM + D” Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and in DESIGN. He says a “Designer is an alchemist who brings invention into innovation” and what’s next in the Future of AI? future of ageing? Future of designing or changing “legislation” in cities? #rca @designtrust #designtrust#designtrusthk @royalcollegeofart #bodw#bodw2017#DTFS#futureofdesign#futureofeducation
Ever been working on something so intently that you suddenly realize several hours have passed and you forgot to eat? 🤦🏻♀️ This was one of the projects that made me totally guilty of that. It can be a blessing because you get a lot of sh*t done, and a curse because you usually end up eating poorly as a result. #creativeproblems
I realized a few days ago that I haven’t shared a lot of my larger projects, so doing a little #throwback to my senior exhibition from a couple years ago. It was titled “Lose the Labels” and explored the deeply rooted norms, rules, and beliefs that exist around things like toys and activities for kids. It started with a lot of reading and reviewing research by psychologists and sociologists on the subject before moving into designing a way to share the information that was easier to understand and filled my whole section of the gallery.
The result was a two part installation that allowed you to interact with the information. The first wall featured a “choose your own adventure” type storybook that was hand illustrated and allowed you to make different decisions as you went along that influenced the ending. The second wall invited people to add in their own stories and experiences by writing them on square cards and clipping them to a grid on the wall.
It took a lot of time and energy to complete, especially since senior projects were in addition to our other coursework, but it was really rewarding to see the whole thing come together and watch people interact with it.
One of the most eye opening things during the project was noticing how often I personally just flowed along without pausing for a second to ask why we are doing something. I totally suggest giving it a try some time for a day or even just a few hours. You might be as surprised as I was how often you do something just because without much thought on the matter. If you do, I would love to hear what you find out.
