The Design Studio is a new multi discipline approach that is introduced for the first time this year as part of the Fourth International Conference of the Faculty of Applied Arts:
The workshops propose that design as a discipline, or practice from cross-departments within the faculty can innovatively address the real-world design problems and/or human needs that may result in from an industrial/product issues or known unsolved problems.
The Design Studio workshops have four aims.
Firstly, to inspire students to think creatively like professional designers;
Secondly, to give students confidence and independence by allowing them to use their own creative design tools and techniques;
Thirdly, to establish a teamwork spirit within the workshop format;
Fourthly, to pilot the initiative and evaluate its pros and cons before deploying it on a wider scale.
