This studio will identify areas or opportunities within design processes to radically redesign. Starting with existing systems that serve as universal modes of problem-solving, we will investigate how these systems might be biased and exclusionary. How might we identify our blindspots towards greater inclusion? How might issues of diversity such as race, gender and culture, influence standard design processes? How might we learn from each other’s lived experiences as resources to expand the design process? Through readings and guest speakers, we will investigate those who have historically been excluded from design. Students will examine design processes and engage in workshops and hands-on, collaborative projects to understand new design approaches, and propose alternate methods of what designing with, instead of for, might look like.
