Toolkit: Design Experiments

A toolkit to foster a sense of curiosity, experimentation and play with design and technology tools in order to uncover new ideas and encourage an openess to discovery.

Students will investigate an architectural technique and technology activity as employed by design professionals and academics. They will then use design thinking and the methodologies they have explored to investigate future needs of the Brisbane urban environment.
