Extrapolates the design process, including the notion of a variable set of constraints, into the future. The effect of 'Futures' on the design process is further explored through a problem based learning project. Design projects will apply the design process both to future constraints and hypothesised future technologies.
Takes the design process, including the notion of a variable set of constraints, and extrapolates this into the future.
