Design Briefs

Look around the room and think of 5 designs you can see

What are they?

Describe the color, texture, size, purpose of the design

If you were to asked by someone who had never seen or knew the purpose of the design how would you describe it.

  • What need is it fulfilling?
  • How do you know it has fulfilled its purpose?              

How would you work out the cost

How would you ensure it meets safety standards?

Redesign the Quad

The quad currently is an open, uncovered space.

How can it be improved?

Redesign the quad and take into account the purpose of the redesign.

  • Is it to stimulate students, provide a peaceful environment?
  • Is it for safety.
  • What sort of materials would you use.
  • What would be the cost?
  • How do you convey the design to the client?
  • What sort of research would you need to to? How do you convince someone that you have the right design idea?
  • How do you convey the design visually?
  • Would you use a walk-through?
  • What software might you use?

Write up the design brief for the quad.
