COURSE SYNOPSIS Building upon theory and practice, experiments in design practice explore the creative boundaries between the conceptual and the applied. Supporting novelty, innovation and original thinking, experimental design develops a discourse between the act of designing, design thinking and a design process. Combining lecture material and studio-based projects, students will begin to explore the boundaries and spaces between concept and theory, and making and describing through a series of design projects of increasing complexity and a range of expressions and media. AIMS OF THE COURSE Design is a mediator between us and what we produce, how we want to live, what is valued, what gives life quality. Design impacts upon how we live, eat, play, learn, enjoy and reproduce. The aims of this course are to explore emerging expressions of contemporary life through an evolution of experimental projects in a logical process of enquiry. The course will build upon learned skills and knowledge where speculative thought, the creative act and systematic research are applied to understand how anything can be the initial source of design inspiration. COURSE LEARNING OBJECTIVES Creative & Critical Thinking By the end of the course, students will:  

    

be able to creatively develop and produce design through a range of media and practices. have an ability to use imagination and lateral thinking to translate critical design issues (composition, aesthetics, identity, meaning, perception, sensitivity to context, response to needs, poetic interpretation) into innovative design concepts. be able to critically and creatively apply a range of design strategies and design thinking referencing past and the potential. learn to interpret a brief, to research appropriate precedents to effectively draw insight and inspiration. be able to combine a range of disciplines, theories and practices to create innovative design approaches and outputs. understand the principles of a design process and the ability to acquire new knowledge through the act of designing. develop an understanding of the connections between design theory and the practice of design.

Communication By the end of the course, students will have learned to:   

convincingly communicate concepts and theories using a variety of visual media with clarity & insight. articulate the meaning and purpose of their projects including theories and methods in a researched and referenced written synopsis. carry a project to high levels of unique expression and resolution

Leadership By the end of the course, students will have learned to: 

to think & work independently and to cultivate a personal design approach and position.


 

debate and reflect critically about design, considering political, social and cultural aspects engage in constructive discourse about course projects of self and others

COURSE CONTENT This course is concerned with some crucial aspects of design as being a uniquely human ability. The acts of designing or creating are processes rich in complexity. If we accept the idea that design also emphasizes investigation, interpretation and presentation of a reality in a cultural and social context, then design is a means of enquiry both in the absolute and the relative. This course emphasises a rigorous questioning of the everyday to unmine potential sources for design exploration, combined with precedent and theoretical research throughout the trimester. Evolving the complexity of the design concepts, various media are also explored as both an expression of the intent and as an understanding of the meaning of the evolving media themselves. Experimental Design Ideas reflects contemporary design creativity which expresses and embodies innovative methods to reveal new ideas about the constructed context of our daily lives. COURSE DELIVERY The design studio operates on three level of instruction: the whole class, the tutorial group and the individual. This course is primarily divided between lecture and studio sessions. The content of the course will be delivered as a series of lectures at the beginning of each week which contribute to the concepts and underlying ideas within each project. Supplementary readings will be handed out during the lecture for certain studio tutorial sessions. Tutors will be in the studio at all scheduled times undertaking group and individual instruction as well as the reviewing of project work. The tutorials will also be a time for students to maintain an ongoing discussion of the progress of their projects as well as the presentation of due assignments.

ASSIGNMENTS / PROJECTS Assignment work is largely project-based with some critical writing. Through the course students will be engaged in several assignments that build upon each other through these themes:   

design, creativity and experimentation; experiencing design ideas and theory through a self-directed study; critical reflection of an evolving design hypothesis.

In the design process, students will explore a range of design media, will learn about design knowledge through the act of experimentation to express a concept and will exploit their potential in the creative act of designing. There are five assignments for CCDN 231. Full descriptions and instructions for each of these will be posted on the course website and individually distributed via email during the term. A brief description of each assignment is provided below.

ASSIGNMENT 1

Extension B Evidence and experience of what is observable by all senses is us in the world. Assignment 1 isolates and examines the physical experience of our constructed environment. It is from observation and analysis, that a critical understanding of factual knowledge can begin to reveal unique characteristics, forming a broader innovative and theoretical base for the process of designing. The richness of everyday life is the context to unmine design potentials that relate to the physical body in everyday acts, movements or gestures. Students will be asked to explore in detail the constructed world and the body and to creatively express


their findings to reveal something, unnoticed. From these acts, each student will identify three potential elements of interest, formerly embedded in the everyday act. submission format assessment

ASSIGNMENT 2

Extension S Expanding beyond and augmenting our physical relationship to the world is how we sense it. Assignment 2 explores our sensory existence within our everyday life as an extension or reduction of our capacities. Experiments of an expansive exploration into the senses by questioning it through both an intuitive and creative process will be done simultaneously with literature research. Students will need to develop an understanding of the abstract properties of their investigations through a range of sensory experiments with a high sense of aesthetic intention. submission format assessment

ASSIGNMENT 3

Extensions M The synthesis and combination of the ideas and the knowledge from the two previous assignments are the basis for assignment 3. Remembering and forgetting, absence and presence are a couple of dialectical parameters than define how we think and experience the things that engage us. Things are expressions of an interpretation of reality. Mixing intuitive and non-intuitive design methods and personal creative impulses, knowledge and procedures, students will create a design output that is developed from a conceptual premise of intentionality and presented in a form of an experience for someone else - related to a well-developed design premise supported with reflective and critical writings developed throughout the project process. submission format assessment

Extension T Translating the ideas and the experiences mined through the course into another medium of expression – that of a short experimental video – will challenge how each extension evolves the complexity of the concept and augments different understandings and meaning of design and aesthetic intention for both the creator and for the participant. The element of time, the interpretation of experiences into a time-based media, can be a commentary, analysis, creative expression or questioning, to name a few, of our contemporary life and time, and how design participates in this dialogue. submission format assessment

Final Thesis To review and extrapolate how the everyday offers endless expressions of meaning, how can a book which combines images and 1000 words offer both conclusions and future questions about design, arising from the progressive exploration and research of the four projects in CCDN 231, to theorize about your design concepts or ideas ...... in a critical analysis of the projects, is one objective of the final thesis? Conclude with a statement that implies a future investigation, either idea or process, as the next step in this evolving research by design, in the act of designing.

**Please note that all written assignments must follow the APA citation style (6th edition). Review APA guidelines at: http://aut.ac.nz.libguides.com/APA6th and be sure to download the APA Style Sheet provided on the course website. ASSESSMENT REQUIREMENTS Assessment criteria specific to individual projects will be listed in each Project Brief. Overall assessment criteria for this course include:     

demonstrate an ability to synthesise findings into a design. an open exploration of a wide range of ideas, sources and media. develop and critical and analyitcal approach to design and design research. a level of illustrated understanding of theory in relation to design; demonstrate an understanding of the increasing complexity of a design process.

The course is internally assessed by assignment work in the form of four assignments. Assignments are assessed and graded A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, D, E, (where C is a PASS). Grades only are issued to students. The final grade for the course is based on the aggregation of the percentage marks for each of the assignments, and a final grade of C or better is required to pass the course. The four assignments contribute towards the final course grade and are due as follows: A1 A2 A3 A4 A5

Your work will be reviewed on the basis of the degree to which it meets the assessment criteria. Although visitors may be involved in some of the reviews, the assessment of the course is carried out by the course coordinator in consultation with the tutors. The School has a long tradition of providing critical review of student work as it progresses especially in design projects. This is part of feed-back for learning purposes. Such reviews must not be misunderstood as indicators of standards and they are different from assessment. Students have a responsibility to attend critical reviews at the appointed time as part of the learning process. Review panels are often composed of internal and external members for the appointed times and cannot be re-composed to consider late


submissions. Consequently late work will not receive a critical review, though it will be assessed subject to any penalties as set out below. • Critical Review: May take place during the development phases of a project as well as at the time of the final submission. Its purpose is to identify strengths and weaknesses in the work and to offer suggestions to generally encourage the student. An encouraging critical review does not necessarily mean a good assessment result. • Assessment: May take place at a stage in a project or on final submission (or both). Its purpose is to value the work in terms of the objectives stated in the handout and to express this as a grade. Moderation of all assessment in design is undertaken at the end of the Trimester after critical reviews, involving a wider group of staff than the immediate lecturers in the course. This process ensures fairness. All grades posted during this course are only provisional results until confirmed by the School Examiners Committee which meets after the examination period. ATTENDANCE AND PARTICIPATION Attendance and participation is an important aspect of the learning process, and you are required to attend all the lectures and tutorials. If extraordinary circumstances arise that require you to be absent from some class sessions, you should discuss the situation with the Course Coordinator as soon as possible. COURSE EXPECTED WORKLOAD You should expect to spend a total of around 200 hours on this course, including both scheduled class time and independent study. Typically this involves around 12-14 hours per week during the twelve teaching weeks, with the balance during the mid trimester break, study week and examination period. This means that in addition to scheduled lectures and tutorials you are expected to spend a minimum of 6-9 hours per week generally pursuing independent research and project work for this course. http://www.victoria.ac.nz/home/about_victoria/avcacademic/publications/assessment-handbook.pdf READINGS AND REFERENCE MATERIAL Please refer to the course website/blog for an up-to-date assigned and suggested readings as well as suggested readings at the end of this document. MATERIALS AND EQUIPMENT REQUIRED Students will need to provide all materials and equipment as necessary for the completion of required work. It is recommended that you purchase a laptop although computer facilities are available at the School. If you are purchasing a laptop and would like information on the minimum requirements please contact the Student Administration Office. While digital cameras are available at the school, it is also recommended that students consider purchasing a simple digital camera (3.2mpxl minimum). Note: The Student Loan, administered by StudyLink, allows students to claim up to $1000 for course related costs for each year of study. RECORDING OF WORK AND PORTFOLIO You are strongly encouraged to respect and care for your work, making and recording a visual summary of each project in this course. This may be in digital and/or hard copy. The principal purpose of this is to


maintain a record of your work for incorporation into your own personal ‘Design Portfolio’. Recording a summary of your work also means it is available if needed for you or the School to exhibit or publish. SUBMISSION OF WORK Each student is responsible for ensuring their work is submitted to their course tutor on time and in the required format. Late submissions will be penalised as set out below, unless an extension is approved by the Course Coordinator. EXTENSIONS In the event of illness or other extraordinary circumstances that prevent you from submitting a piece of work on time, or that you feel adversely affect the quality of the work you submit, it is important that you discuss your circumstances with the Course Coordinator as soon as possible so that appropriate arrangements may be made. You should complete an Application for Extension form (available from the Faculty Office) for the Course Coordinator to approve. You will also need to provide suitable evidence of your illness or other circumstances. In an emergency, or if you are unable to contact the Course Coordinator, you should advise the Faculty Office of your situation. Work submitted late must be submitted to the Course Coordinator. PENALTIES  Students are required to personally present their work on time at all scheduled reviews and in the location and specified format as set out in project outlines. Failure to personally present work at any scheduled graded review will result in an automatic failing grade of E for the work being reviewed, unless an extension has been approved in writing in advance by the course coordinator.  Late submissions will not be penalised in the event of illness or other extraordinary circumstances provided students have requested an extension of time in writing in advance of the scheduled review, and the course coordinator has similarly approved this in writing (see the Student Administration Office for an Application for Extension form). Work submitted late without the prior agreement of the course coordinator will be penalised by a failing grade of E.  Work submitted late must be submitted directly to the relevant tutor or course coordinator. Any project work left on the project shelves or elsewhere will be entered on the grade sheet as a no-submission.

MANDATORY COURSE REQUIREMENTS In addition to achieving an average of at least ‘C’ across all assessments, in order to pass the course you must also satisfy the following mandatory course requirements:    

attend at least 80% of lectures+ studio/tutorial sessions (attendance will be kept) discuss your project progress with your tutor or the Course Coordinator weekly attend and present your project work at all scheduled critical reviews submit all assignments

STUDENT REPRESENTATIVES The Faculty of Architecture and Design operates a system of Class Representatives in 100-level courses, and Year Representatives in each of the professional disciplines. Student Representatives are elected during a class session in the first week of teaching. All student representatives will be listed on the STUDiO notice board in the Atrium, and the relevant Representatives are also listed on studio notice


boards. Student Representatives have a role in liaising between staff and students to represent the interests of students to the lecturers, and also in providing students with a communication channel to STUDiO and VUWSA. ACADEMIC INTEGRITY AND PLAGIARISM Academic integrity means that University staff and students, in their teaching and learning are expected to treat others honestly, fairly and with respect at all times. It is not acceptable to mistreat academic, intellectual or creative work that has been done by other people by representing it as your own original work. Academic integrity is important because it is the core value in which the University’s learning, teaching and research activities are based. Victoria University’s reputation for academic integrity adds value to your qualification. The University defines plagiarism as presenting someone else’s work as if it were your own, whether you mean to or not. ‘Someone else’s work’ means anything that is not your own idea. Even if it is presented in your own style, you must acknowledge your sources fully and appropriately. This includes: • • • • • •

Material from books, journals or any other printed source The work of other students or students or staff Information from the internet Software programs and other electronic material Designs and ideas The organisation or structuring of any such material

Academic Integrity, Plagiarism and Copyright ACADEMIC INTEGRITY Academic integrity is important because it is the core value on which the University’s learning, teaching and research activities are based. University staff and students are expected to treat academic, intellectual or creative work that has been done by other people with respect at all times. Victoria University’s reputation for academic integrity adds value to your qualification. Academic integrity is simply about being honest when you submit your academic work for assessment • You must acknowledge any ideas and assistance you have had from other people. • You must fully reference the source of those ideas and assistance. • You must make clear which parts of the work you are submitting are based on other people’s work. • You must not lie about whose ideas you are submitting. • When using work created by others either as a basis for your own work, or as an element within your own work, you must comply with copyright law (Summarised from information on the University’s Integrity and Plagiarism website: www.victoria.ac.nz/home/studying/plagiarism.html) PLAGIARISM The University defines plagiarism as presenting someone else’s work as if it were your own, whether you mean to or not. ‘Someone else’s work’ means anything that is not your own idea. Even if it is presented in your own style, you must acknowledge your sources fully and appropriately. This includes: • • • • • •

Material from books, journals or any other printed source The work of other students or staff Information from the internet Software programs and other electronic material Designs and ideas The organisation or structuring of any such material

Copyright applies to created work including designs, music, computer programs, artistic and literary work. The work can be in printed, digital, audio, video or other formats. Normally the author or creator of a work owns the copyright for their lifetime and for 50 years after their death, (although sometimes someone other than the creator of a work owns the copyright to the work, such as the creator’s employer, or a person who commissions the creator’s work). You must have permission from the copyright owner to copy, alter, display, distribute or otherwise use created work. If the creator has applied a Creative Commons licence to a work, this permits others to use the work but only in accordance with that licence.
