Time is running fast and the Design Project is more than half way through! During the last weeks you have been working in your design project and there are still a few weeks left before you will submit your poster and the final portfolio. As you saw during the Peer Review 2, different groups are in different points in the process and that’s fine. However, it is time to consider what is left for you to do and decide how and when you are going to do it.
Read and explore the points 6 and 7 of the Design Project to get more inspiration, and remember that you have tools and exercises for idea generation, etc. in the Design Project Space that you can use.
As we told you during Peer Review 2, next Wednesday, May 13th, we will have the Update Meeting with the examiner, Tuula Ericsson, professor in Landscape Design and Architecture, and with a lot of experience working with design projects. She will be with us to know what you are doing and to be familiar with your projects before the Sustainability Festival. She won’t be there to examine you during the Update Meeting but to give you feedback in your process. See her as a valuable resource to solve doubts and improve your design process. She will be from 10 to 15 minutes with each group and she will make suggestions and comments. As you have been doing during the Peer Reviews, present your problem, how your process is going and show her your preliminary results, solutions and/or prototypes and also prepare questions and doubts for her.
For the Update Meeting the class will be divided in two. One half will meet at 17:15 and the other half 18:35. The groups will be working in the class and Tuula will share up to 15 minutes with every group in the order you have here:
- Group 9: Food+Agriculture
- Group 4: Green Home
- Group 8: Fantastic Five
- Group 3: Resolve
- Groups 7: WWW – Wasted Without Waste
- Group 6: Natural Spaces in the City
- Group 5: Fresh Outta Food
- Group 2: Mobile Energy
- Group 1: Sparks
Have a nice weekend and good luck with your design project!
