Des (Mag.)(ord. 270) - BV (1159) PRODUCT SERVICE SYSTEM DESIGN - DESIGN PER IL SISTEMA PRODOTTO SERVIZIO
051436 - PRODUCT SERVICE SYSTEM DESIGN STUDIO - SPATIAL DESIGN
The aim of the course is to train students in the overall design of a product-service system, with a particular focus on the design aspects of services and on their manifestation in physical and digital touchpoints. The Product Service-System Design Studio is divided into theoretical lessons and laboratory activities: it guides students in identifying and formulating a problem, in developing a "concept" and its technical feasibility, with activities carried out in teams. It focuses on current issues and it dialogues with actual realities and actors, through structured forms of context analysis and the co-design of ideas. It integrates different disciplinary contributions and provides the opportunity to apply design methods and tools in practice.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
Students: - know and understand the theory and tools of service design and of the design of physical and digital touch points, the techniques and tools of field research and co-design - know how to make design synthesis and render it effectively; - know how to develop, independently and in groups, product/service system projects, by sharing and communicating the design choices , developing aptitudes to negotiation, leadership and conflict management; - know how to manage problems that are not strictly inherent to the addressed issues in the teaching transferring what has been learned.
The specific focus of the studio will explore how environment and experience design can merge with PSSD to create an understanding of how place, space and experience can be potent and memorable components of a comprehensive product, service and system design approach. Physical and digital modelling, inclusive of drawing and diagramming, and an exposure to the manipulation of spaces and surfaces via immersive renderings articulating the intended environments and experiences will be explored, while the design tools and processes presented during previous coursework in PSSD will be continued and applied.
The studio will explore and practice the design of environments and experiences as a contributing component of a comprehensive product / service / system design proposal. The importance of place and space is therefore critical to understand, and to possibly manipulate or enhance. To do so, it is important that each student can see space, and imagine space, as well as the scale and sense of the space. To have the ability to manipulate or create space, one must first be able to see, visualize and understand it. The triad of Space / Object / Surface is fundamental to us as humans, and certainly to us as designers. Strong familiarity, understanding and ability in all three areas are vital for creative excellence, innovation and experimentation. The studio will develop familiarity, understanding and ability in a variety of ways, and through a variety of processes and tools. Readings, lectures, in-situ visits, case studies, and iterative design work will be combined with photography, video, animation, sketching, diagramming, writing, drawing and modelling. Modelling will include immersive digital (still and moving) images and physical scale models and diagrams. Drawing will include sketches, diagrams, and scaled plans, sections and elevations; all will served to articulate the ideas and programmatic intentions of the schemes, and should exhibit the understanding of scale through the inclusion of the human figure and human artefacts.
There are no pre-requisites for attendance.
Modalità di valutazione
