Color . Material + Concept

3

This class will focus on the emotive qualities of material - researching and exploring how material and color impacts 3-dimensional space. Color and Material should not be discrete fields within architecture and design, rather an extension of all real experience. We will therefore approach color and material as integral to the design process, letting the fundamental qualities of both influence design, and treating them as critical points of departure for investigating spatial possibilities. This course involves research, student presentations, and design problems focused on exploring materials and graphic spaces at various scales from object to skin to building. Course Objective: To establish a greater understanding of the emotive powers of color & materials.

Degree Project: Studio

3

This studio provides the student with the opportunity to develop a project, which culminates from research and design, initiated during the seventh term prep studio. The class focuses on the process of design development. The nature of materials, structure, cost, environmental factors, applicable code issues guide the development of the projects. This studio explores the topic and process of moving a design project beyond preliminary design. In the design development phase, the work is further designed through more exact design decisions made due to greater focus on detail and a closer exploration of a part or piece of the project at a larger scale. Accompanying this investigation is a greater attention to material, technological and ecological aspects. There will be a focus on the particulars of the selected projects. Range of projects will be Retail design, Hospitality/restaurant design, exhibit design, Residential design, Interior products (furniture/lighting) and Set/production design. This studio will manifest itself through large-scale drawings/construction documents, models/constructs and/or multi-media presentation.

Design Lab 3: Applied Graphics

3

This is an introduction to interactive graphics and its role in spatial design. There is always a certain amount of interactivity in every project. These interactions help to elevate the level of emotional impact and effectiveness. When well crafted, the level of involvement, impact and interactive process adds to the investment of the user and creates a sense of ownership over the experience. The strength of story paired with place, materials and message supply a rich basis for Experience Design.

Completely Integrated Message Making How can graphics, environment, and technology interface to deliver unique opportunities in brand awareness? This class looks at ways to involve and evolve these disciplines into projects that move far beyond tranditional approaches to graphic and advertising campaigns, retail, hospitality and exhibit design. Students will explore branding in three different assignments: 1. Pop-Up Retail/Rogue Shows How do you create a temporary environment that appears unannounced quickly draws a crowd to deliver a message that captures a brand attitude and essence and then disappears or morphs into something completely dirrerent? The future of branding must resonate with today's consumer who wants to be challenged, delighted and educated in unexpected ways. 2. Event Design Event design for corporate functions where the branded message is obvious is one way to speak to an audience. But more and more these branded events are becoming non-labels. Quiet forms of messages are strongly focusing on a targeted purpose for the audience. A one day event can take the shape of finding an old train yard that has a history and making it into a one night concert that offers the best music acts in the world. 3. The City Block Develop a city block into one branded environment. From a window to a facade to the sidewalk and the road. All aspects of a city block and what is encountered along the way can be used to deliver an experience that points to a place, a product, or a service. Technologies are emerging that are changing the landscape of architecture in an urban environment. A brand that can take advantage of this opportunity will have the ability to tell their story several thousand times a day. Lectures include past branding efforts in time from super graphics of the 70's to the uber interactive events of today where the audience is the medium and translators of the message. Guest speakers will share case studies of their own projects as well as those that have inspired them.

Jenny Craig:Lifestyle Exprnc

Mission: To fight global obesity and be the champion of health + wellness. Objective: Inspire a food and nutrition lifestlye movment with clear, simple, easy-to-understand brand position, food offerings, packaging, merchandise/pop display, retail environment, that integrate new media, and online / offline strategy with innovative communication touch points for all levels and life stages. Background: By reviewing our business model, food / non-food products and the integration of science & technology, how do we differentiate Jenny from the competition and prove program efficacy? Our goal is to transform from a traditional program into a lifestyle approach and be the intuitive solution for health & wellness needs at every stage of life, regardless of age, gender or socio-economic constraints. The experience of shopping for our breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks etc is something we all do, and for some it is a lifestyle and for others it is common chore. We belivethat by looking into key insights and trends of various lifestyles surrounded around food, health and wellnes, we will discover short and long term areasthat will be ripe for turning them into leading branded health and wellness lifestyles. However we all shop with different lenses or criteria based on our health, income, wants, social triggers and thus, as designers our job is to communicate the benefits of a product, service or experience in a way that captures the heart and mind of the consumer. The challenge is to look at the Jenny Craig food experience and the way you would inform, educate and inspire the client/consumer at any stage in their life to live the Jenny Craig brand in a meaningful way. Through the brand promise, food offerings, products, packaging, retail, advertising in online and offline media campaigns the Jenny Craig brand will look at these touchpoints. Envisioning an overall trans media experience around how one engages with their daily food activities In-center, At Home and or at the Supermarket of today and in the future where new distribution channels have yet to be imagined will be key in setting the foundation for Jenny Craig to be the leader in this transformation. With partnership and additional research provided by Jenny Craig, Art Center's TDS studio will undertake Jenny Craigs challenge to examine and innovate around the larger mission of fighting global obesity and be the champion of health and wellness in the next 5  10 years.

Play the LA River

The LA River is iconic-its design has determined what LA looks like, how it works, and also how its communities have come together and have been driven apart. This transdisciplinary studio course will challenge students to use design to explore the future of the LA River, which is currently at the forefront of social and political agendas in the city. Students will learn about competing visions for the future of the LA River as imagined by residents, policy makers, artists, activists, and other stakeholders. Students will create projects in three major areas of exploration: urban ecology, gentrification and development, and recreation and leisure. There will be an opportunity for students to exhibit their work at the end of the term, bringing their projects to a public forum to enable dialogue with community stakeholders. This course will introduce students to methods for incorporating cultural immersion and social engagement into the creative process, with a focus on the role the LA River continues to play in city space and social life. A partnership with the arts collective Project 51 will facilitate access to key sites and launch independent student research projects on the intersections between the LA River and surrounding communities. We will examine how researching and making within real-world urban contexts can inspire creative interventions, foster cross-cultural dialogue, and engage critically with the contemporary landscape. Students will learn how research methods such as interviewing, observing, and participating can be used at various stages of the creative process to reveal diverse social perspectives and cultural phenomena within a community. Frameworks from ethnography, anthropology, sociology, history and related fields will provide critical lenses for public engagement through creative practice. Students will gather and analyze ethnographic data, prototype preliminary interventions or speculations, and present and exhibit their final projects publicly. The ethical dimensions of methods and outcomes will be addressed throughout the term, and examined through concrete contexts. This course will be jointly offered by the Designmatters, Humanities & Sciences departments and can be applied to the Designmatters Concentration TDS.

With very strong partners, this is a unique opportunity for students to push the depth and pilot implementation of their projects. The previous development seminar was an incredible educational experience for the ENV and Prod students involved, affording the chance to attend a NCIIA strategy-mapping workshop, and present to social innovation thought leaders at the NCIIA conference in San Francisco. The Seminar is what allowed both Balde a Balde and Giradora to move beyond the classroom, to garner $65k of grants, along with numerous Safe Agua awards, international lectures, and major publicity for both the students and the school, and the creation of a new Social Enterprise lead by the students. (Complete list attached for reference). We feel that a Spring 2014 Development seminar is our best opportunity to provide these types of opportunities for 4-8 students and continue to push Safe Agua to make real world change.

Second Nature

3

Untamed, artificial, nurturing, destructive, endangered. How we see nature is always framed by culture; at some distance, as second nature to ourselves. This TDS examines all cultural representations of nature: the history of painted landscapes, photography, cinema, video art, design including architecture, and poetry and literature. The physical form of landscape will be considered as well, especially when it is culturally manipulated, as we find in gardens, earth works and sculpture. We will go on field trips to to study the local landscape, as a source of history and inspiration. The environment, economics, race, gender and sexuality will provide multiple lenses through which we view the horizon. We will additionally consider our own "wildness," however that may manifest. This class is a five hour studio TDS with an embedded H&S component. We will have lectures, seminar discussions, screenings, field trips and class critiques of student work. All departments and disciplines are accepted. Projects can be in any media. Participants will produce art or design projects for the class, including a midterm, a class exhibition, and a final. There will be readings for each topic, and short papers directed towards opening up discussions. Active participation in all class discussions is a substantial requirement towards the overall grade.

This course leverages the impact of materials and surfaces on the spatial experience. Previous projects will be brought into class in order to rethink, refine and gain a deeper understanding of material project development. Students will work on sustainable in depth material selections that tie effectively into the storytelling of the project. Aspects like brand relationship, business or use case scenario and local and cultural facets will be addressed in order to create a criteria-driven and sustainable approach towards creating a strong material concept. The effect of selected surfaces and finishes on value proposition, atmosphere and intuitive behavior in space as well as manufacturing processes and finishing techniques will be taken into consideration. Communicating these ideas with compelling material concept representations, refined renderings and material sample displays will be just as important. Course Objective: The goal of this class is to achieve a profound comprehension of thorough material and surface selections, representation techniques and to leave you with elaborate and refined portfolio pieces.

TDS:South Wing - 2030

The Province of South Holland has begun to redefine itself as a network of urban nodes defined by a common focus on knowledge industries, regional and global transport, and cultural treasures. Recently, the province has begun to focus on its most densely populated area, the "South Wing," which includes the city and port of Rotterdam, the second largest city in the Netherlands and the second largest port in the world, the Hague, the national capital, and Delft and Leiden, both historic city centers. After preliminary studies, the Province of South Holland has begun to make strategic proposals for how to brand the "South Wing." Working with a special design atelier within the Province of South Holland, the studio will conduct research on and make strategic branding proposals for the "South Wing" and how it might develop to the year 2030. We will focus on knowledge industries, regional and global transport, and cultural treasures, and on the cities of Rotterdam, the Hague and Delft. We will use scenario planning as our basic methodological research tool and make strategic proposals in the form of scenarios. These scenarios can take the form of websites, storyboards, animations, or small booklets. Ultimately, they will be published as part of the research for the Provincial Branding Study. In addition, we plan to publish a booklet here in the US.

To Scoop Or Not to Scoop

Brief: - Dog waste management (indoor/outdoor) is a $350M category that is growing at 2% annually. Purina has identified this space as a territory for future growth beyond the core and has been working over the last 18 months to frame a POV and potential innovation strategy rooted in user insights, tensions, and need states. To truly disrupt this category will require a broader innovation focus beyond product(s) (into systems, brand/communication innovation, services, new technology/processes, and customer engagement) that are driven by empathy for both dogs and owners and their unique needs.
