Through this design challenge, we found out firsthand how to create and develop a design from scratch. We experimented with the many ways to display our designs, from online models to sketches to a physical scale model. We learned how to problem solve and how designing something is a multi-step process. Through this process, we also learned more small ways that we can protect the environment and live more sustainable lives. We learned how a community marketplace can positively affect the community in many ways. Overall we thought this was a successful project and a great experience.
Please write a description of the project you are proposing. Why do you want to take this on, and what do you hope to learn?
The 2018 National DiscoverDesign Competition is a competition to design an outdoor market space in Chicago. We would make a design that follows the design brief of the competition. We have always loved architecture and design but we aren’t able to explore these areas to the extent we want in our regular classes. Thanks to this opportunity, we hope to learn how to better implement our ideas into the real spaces that the design must conform to. We also want to learn about how the design can positively affect the neighborhood and help give access to things like healthy/locally sourced food. We want to create a design that solves real world problems.
What is your proposed outcome? How will you be able to demonstrate successful completion of this Project?
Our Proposed outcome is to create a valid design that follows the design brief of the competition. To demonstrate a successful completion, we will successfully complete and follow the design challenge constraints.
When do you plan on meeting?
During lunch period
