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.

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.

The second of three consecutive studio courses, this course is an overview of 3D computer-aided visualization concepts through the instruction of two industry leading software tools. The focus of this class is on the applications of AutoCAD and Maya to the design process and visual communication. AutoCAD and Maya will be presented through weekly exercises and a more comprehensive project-based approach. The course is structured around three application goals: Basics, Processes and Presentations -which are not seen as completely separable, and intertwine with each other during the term. The first goal is for the student to become familiar with basic representation methods and tools, while the second introduces the additional concepts required for students to dynamically interact with the computer and apply comprehension of these basic techniques to the design process. The third component of the class reviews the different communicative capacities of representation methods. Students will formulate a presentation of their project through analysis and evaluation of presentation techniques.

Project: This project explores our need to develop a place of rest and contemplation in our hectic global-digital world. Whether it's a destination in the mountains, desert or at the beach, we are searching for solutions to our stressful day-to-day environment. We will also need to reexamine opportunities in our homes for developing places of sanctuary, rest and relaxation. Whether it's the joy of a spa experience, the beauty of a meal or the exposure to nature, we need to unplug, recharge and re-focus. We will be exploring the boundaries of sanctuary in regards to our spatial environment, where and how we eat, what we wear and how we find balance in a busy world. In other words we will be developing and defining: spaces, products and lifestyle which elevate the way in which we encounter, interact and live our lives. Pacific Rim 10 will begin with field research to familiarize ourselves with Southern California's opportunities for creating sanctuary.

STRONG APART

BY APPLICATION How might we use a co-creative approach to design spatial experiences that offer emotional, mental and physical support and care for older adults who are facing isolation due to the current global crisis? Opportunity for Design to Make an Impact: Social Inclusion With 13.5 million+ people worldwide infected with the virus, this pandemic has thrown a spotlight on the psychosocial challenges and inequities faced by older people who are ethnic minorities, ill, in nursing homes, palliative or hospice care systems, homebound and experiencing isolation. How might we as designers respond to this global challenge? Co-Design Approach: Rooted in Empathy You will test your assumptions of the elderly and define your own area of opportunity to make an impact through empathy-based design. Co-create with audiences globally across a wide spectrum of perspectives: elders living alone and in institutional housing, with caretakers and families. Engage in discussions and workshops with interdisciplinary guests such as healthcare providers and practitioners, policy makers, designers and activists. Apply your first-hand experience.

Underground: a place to risk, out of the main the new, not part of the ordinary, pioneering. Berlin has a rich history of using UNDERGROUND as a vehicle of change, a laboratory for discovering the outcast, the exception, the accident that defies traditional constructs.

Most classes will meet online, with a few hyflex meetings on-campus in the 1111 Designmatters studio & in-person prototype testing at vaccine pop-up events organized by Get Out the Shot LA The Fall 2021 Designmatters Development Seminar builds on the design outcomes from the Summer 2021 "Vax for All: Design to overcome vaccine hesitancy & achieve equity" TDS studio. You will work as an interdisciplinary team to develop, prototype, and implement the CARE Vaccine Van modular system and branding, to make real-world social impact in providing COVID vaccines to LA's marginalized communities. You will engage a co-design approach rooted in empathy, to design for vaccine equity. Create highly resourceful designs that support families to get vaccinated together, with a focus on the 150,000 kids in LA who lack formal points of contact with the medical system. Co-create & prototype designs with subject matter experts, including grassroots health equity organization Get Out the Shot LA and community clinics such as Kedren Health. Test & iterate your prototypes at COVID-19 vaccine pop up events with local organizations, small businesses, and other community settings. Envision how a prototype Vaccine Van system can serve as a first step towards a larger initiative of a fleet delivering mobile primary care to under-served children, families and communities in the future.
