What is the course about?

GDCV1106 looks at the things surrounding us in our daily lives, and—through practical application of aesthetical, phenomenological and other design theories—establishes concepts about the true nature(s) of things that allow us to make more informed choices about the objects that we fill our lives with. Emphasis will be on product design, but will also make connections to furniture and fashion design, and other object-based design areas. It also contains a significant number of practical studio classes that allow participants to hands-on experience and explore what it takes to make things “beautiful”.

What do the students say about this course?

It is quite interesting because we can try 3D printing with our own design. I also learnt how to make wood products with technical tools and it is a good chance for me to develop another skill.
