This studio course will explore core elements of industrial design through concept ideation, material selection, model making and fabrication processes. Historic, contemporary, and future developments in industrial design along with industry awareness and sustainability will be covered. Innovation in new material and fabrication technology related to everyday objects, soft goods, portable structures, electronics, furniture, and transportation will be explored in this studio. Applications for common materials such as metals, plastics, wood, ceramics, and composites will be tested. Industrial design processes such as forming, casting, cutting, joining, and finishing will be demonstrated. Practice based course assignments will cover sketching, 3-D form, 3-D rendering, and prototype making. Presentations will highlight social entrepreneurship, environmental responsibility, ethics, and real-world problem solving.
