URBAN FURNITURE FOR THE EXTERIORS OF LANCIS HOW TO MAKE THE OUTDOORS HABITABLE?
LANCIS is the National Laboratory science of Sustaintability located in University City (CU). The building is surrounded mostly by xeriscapes with flora belonging to the Pedregal de San Angel Ecological Reserve (REPSA)
NO OUTDOOR FURNITURE
POOR COEXISTENCE BETWEEN USERS
BIOPHILIA Nature is not something optional, but absolute essential to living a happy, healthy and meaningful life.
The final design was based on the concept of biophilia, that suggests that there is an instintctive bond between human beings and nature. This concept, has been recognised as a key consideration when designing and developing workspaces. Biophilic design can reduce stress, enhance creativity and clarity of thought, improve our well-being and expedite healing; as the world population continues to urbanize, these qualities are ever more important.
We put special attention to the building`s design floor, which is inspired in the Sierpinski Triangle fractal. The final design is in accordance to the angles of the floor, so we get a collection of module urban furniture that can fits into any corner of the exterior of the building,

LOOM SAME TECHNIQUE, NEW DESIGNS
In collaboration with Marina, a mexican artisan from Oaxaca who is dedicated to woven products on loom, like jewelry and bags, we made a proposal of new designs for her products with new materials that optimize and promote her sales.
Santo Tomàs Jalieza, Oaxaca.
Santo Tomás Jalieza is a small community located 25 kilometers from the Oaxaca city on hwy 175. Local artisans create embroidery work and weavings which are sold in a local market. The waist loom technique consists of two groups of interlacing perpendicularly threads, one of them is called “warp”, which are parallel threads and go along tissue and the “plot” set of strands that intertwine with the first. The loom is the tool to tighten the warp so that the frame can be inserted. The backstrap loom takes its name from the way it adjusts the knitter at one end his waist with a leather girdle called backstrap and the other end to a tree or pole. LOCATION

HOW CAN WE INTERACT WITH OUR ENVIRONMENT?
This project was part of the Sugar global network. Sugar is a global network that brings together multidisciplinary students from different universities and challenges them to solve real world product development issues. During one academic year, the course teaches students to use the IDEO/Stanford design process in product development, and itâ€™s focused in practice-based learning. The global students team up to prototype, test and iterate in order to develop and implement innovative solutions to real world design challenges posed by multinational corporate sponsors. The final proof-of-concept prototypes are typically featured at the Stanford/Sugar Design EXPE each June in California.
+The callenge was getting people felt a connection with their context, so we prototyped using ul trasonic presence sensors in a wall made of independent axes. + Having sensors in the wall, the axes capture the human presence causing a rotation movement. + We realized that this effect manages to make users feel a closer realtionshio with their context. + The wall can be placed in different contexts, such as schools, offices, parks, restaurants, etc.
The final proof-of-concept prototype was featured at the Stanford/Sugar Design EXPE on June 2015.
A BETTER WAY TO KNOW THE CENTRAL CAMPUS OF UNAM

TEAM: FRANCISCO ALANIS, ORIANNA CORONA, ROCÍO CALDERÓN, ELIOT CANO
”The process for requesting a visit is a bit complicated, we have to send many mails and sometimes we get no response”

“Me and my friends love to take the visits, but we always ended up really tired because of the sun”
Adriana Carmon, 21 years old | Mexico city.
“I took the visit, and it was great, but I spent a whole day to find the office and register”
Noah Wagerman, 28 years old | New York. .
+ We took the guided tours + We observe the behavior of users + We talked with the people that work in the office + We realized about the necessities of users + We did many brainstormig sessions + We made journey maps and a blue print + We prototyped the ideas + We validated and search the final idea
SLOW PROCESS OF REGISTRATION
PROBLEMS AND OPPORTUNITIES
During the process, we did a study dividing the user experience in three phases: + Pre service + Service + Post service In this way, we could recognize the strengths and weakness of each stage to get a new service proposal. THE PROCESS
We realized that there were more problems at the pre service and service phases, so we started testing with users to find a ways to improve the experience.
ONLINE BOOKING SYSTEM PRE SERVICE
Now the online booking is in real time and the office workers now know what kind of visitors they have.
The booking process time changes from 1 - 2 days to 15 minutes. Now, the office workers have a database of the visitors.
Users can customize their visit, this way, the office workers know the interest of the visitors.
The office workers need to ensure the visit to prepare well, so, there is a confirmation question in the process of registration. At the end, the office sends a confirmation e-mail.
BAD WEATHER, NO PROBLEM SERVICE
During the guided tours the visitors can protect themselves from weather conditions such as sun or rain with a red coat or a red umbrella provided by the office during the time of their visit. These red articles also work as walking publicity.
+ Quick registration. + Visitors database. + Recognizable image during the visit. + Strenghtening the relationship between the office and users.
