Course description

This course is a unique opportunity to develop a strong capacity of visioning looking at Space and moving into the most innovative areas of knowledge able to help us to generate new visions for the future and new scenarios that could help people to live better in a sustainable way.

We believe that space innovations will have a strong influence on how people behave and perform. We also believe that Space can really inspire designers and help to understand better how we can be more conscious of the transformation technology brings.

The course is supported by the European Space Agency (ESA) with experts and scientists who will define with the academy the themes of the projects to develop together with students according to the strategic programs of space agencies, and will integrate their experience and know-how with lectures useful to the development of the concept design workshops.

Space allows students to develop creativity with intense visioning activities by confronting with confined and microgravity environment that is not part of our common experience.

Thanks to ESA we will be able to compare our design vision with real conditions and requirements and find innovative solutions designed for Space, but that can be also transferred to daily life on Earth becoming spin-off.

The results of the1st edition 16-17 of Space4inspirAction have been presented during an event at Planetarium Ulrico Hoepli in Milan and during the European Night of Researchers at ESA Italian Headquarters in Frascati, Rome.

 

Educational objectives

The course has a dual purpose: on the one hand push students to get inspired by Space and define new visions, however, starting with real conditions and requirements, on the other to imagine new spin-off, or terrestrial applications, that can be transferred to our daily lives improve it.

For this reason design companies from the private sector will be involved to the projects together with space companies with the aim to translate space inspiration and vision into spin-off generating new concepts of products.

The unusual and extraordinary environment offers the students the possibility to think out-of-the-box, like astronauts experience looking at the Earth from another point of view, and the chance to increase the creativity and the ability to imagine and design new objects and tools starting from a perspective completely unknown.

Through the methodology "design of use and gesture", designer is not limited to creating objects and environments but also new astronauts' behaviours and gestures in relation to the use of objects and environments designed.

The project activities will be carried out in teams, with the aim of reinforcing the cross-cutting skills of teamwork.

The course continues the experience of the 1st edition 16-17 integrating students of mechatronic engineering in the teamwork with students of design in order to foster a multidisciplinary approach able to cross the boundaries and increase the skills of all students.

 

Course structure

The frame of the course is composed by 2 parts which interact with each other:

1. a theoretical and explorative part which provides lectures with ESA experts and scientists;

2. a design and visioning part to set up 2 concept design workshops.

The sequence of activities is planned to introduce progressive levels of complexity, and to give students the opportunity to use previous knowledge and those who are learning in parallel in the theoretical integrated part with the aim to increase their capacity to manage the development of concept design workshops.

The themes of the workshops are inspired by space scenarios in order to find connections between “living in space” and “living on earth” and suitable solutions for two both, looking at astronauts activities in microgravity and the alterations of body postures and movements in relation to their objects, that can generate new gestures and ideas for our projects.

During the 1st edition 16-17 of Space4inspirAction students faced different themes: Space Food System in microgravity conditions, EVA (Extra-Vehicular Activities) Suit for International Space Station (ISS), Habitations System for Interplanetary Missions, from ISS to Mars, passing for the Moon. The companies involved were Argotec, Dainese and Thales Alenia Space.

Space knowledge, space research results, experimentations, new materials and technologies suggested by ESA will be important drivers to increase the innovation value of the projects.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Note Sulla Modalità di valutazione

Examination mode

The course will end with the final evaluation and assignment to all the students of the voting.

The work produced by the students will be evaluated in each of the concept design workshop. Knowledge referred to contents presented during the lessons and included in the bibliography list will be verified together with the quality of the projects.

The evaluations will take into account the interaction methods and the outcomes of the work carried out during the development of the projects, the individual work ability and in team, the ways of representing and presenting the design work.

The principal parameters of evaluation are: the innovation of the idea, the capacity to manage all the phases of the projects and communicate them through drawings, mock-ups and videos.
