LIFE AND DEATH
This platform is concerned with experimental ideas and concepts, developing how DESIGN influences our BEHAVIOUR and conversely how our behaviour influences design. Observation and analysis will form the starting point where you will begin to ask the question ….”What if?” in order to make innovative connections. In this *parallel universe* that we will start to work in, (where anything can be possible) ideas and concepts come first and are the drivers for your thesis and as such it is unlikely that you will have an existing building as a given. Your ideas should be tested and interrogated during the development stages to understand how your design interventions (3D sketches) can effect change, maybe tested at real scale. A love of making, materials and testing is essential for participants, but not in a crafty way. The relationship between technology and human observation is key but not in an academic or theoretical way. We will work on one brief that you will write for yourself from a series of prompts during the year and your output might be a series rather than a singular entity.
