Course Detail

20/FA GRD-601-A

Instructor: Rossi
Credits: 3   Instruction Method: HYB
Status: OPEN

Students are assigned formally structured design projects, each requiring a substantive research phase, a prototype or concept testing phase followed by concept refinement and concept presentation phases. Where appropriate, the research phase will require students to collaborate in teams, and in some instances the entire projects are team-based. Typically, a project definition or project brief will grow out of the research findings and will serve as the plan of work for the completion of the course. Students are expected to develop their design proposals by creating mock-ups and/or conceptual prototypes that would be subject to a process of testing and iterative refinement. Students are also expected to create high quality visual material (concept sketches, computer 2D/3D renderings and layouts), and/or a 3D model, either digitally created or hand built, as appropriate for specific assignment. At the conclusion of these assignments, students are required to make a clear and comprehensive verbal presentation to their faculty and peers. A written document a articulating their research approach, their findings and the rationale and context of their design, in support of the original project brief, is also a requirement.
