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, models or 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 insights, 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.
