A PLAYFUL ATTITUDE
Mini-Festo
Kevin Haley

Nonterior sees the designer as a narrator, who engages with the multi-layered  experience of the contemporary world and who works this into the realm of design.  This platform will push the testing of ideas on a real site, in a real context, with real  communities, stakeholders, external institutions and businesses. We investigate  our site by creating large drawings and films that investigate social, political and  cultural narratives; we will then produce well-developed design propositions that  respond creatively to these new stories. You will develop these proposals through a  design process that draws on local intelligence, and when possible engages people  in process by encouraging interaction and experience. Outcomes might be an  interior or installation, exhibition, event, product or visitor experience. We will adopt  professional methods and working practices, seeing this as the opportunity to start  your own real-life studio practice.
