This course introduces the student to visual perception and conceptualization. Through lectures, discussion and studio exploration students will discover the fundamentals of design, the design process, and creative thinking. Hands-on exploration, sketching and analysis, will allow the student to explore and apply the elements and principles of design, developing an awareness of its application within our environment. Theories pertaining to human factors will be explored including proxemics, anthropometrics and ergonomics. Students will work individually and in groups to create 2D and 3D solutions, presenting their ideas to their peers.
