DSDN-171 – Design in Context

Faculty:Architecture & DesignCorequisites:None

Industrial design and new media are pervasive fields of human endeavour which contribute to the complex interactions in our relationship to technology through artefacts and experiences. By observing and analysing historical approaches and responses in and between these design disciplines, students will explore design history from new perspectives. Analytical, critical and discursive skills, both oral and written are emphasised.
