DAP Design Action Program

work experience Industrial Design Elective sem 1, 2013 GRAP 2303 / 2304 / 2305 / 1048

This student-led elective is an opportunity for Industrial Design students to undertake a voluntary design-based work experience placement in a host organisation. You will work for 72hours or more in an industry, business, community not-for-profit, government organisation or small design practice to expand your experience in undertaking real design projects of value to the organisation. You are required to be pro-active in seeking out and negotiating a work experience placement agreement with a host, supported by the guidelines of the Design Action Program and the assistance of the DAP Coordinator.

Work experience of a minimum 72 hours is to be completed before end of week 14. (For example, 72 hours may be undertaken as 6hours per week for 12 weeks, or 2 weeks at 36 hours per week.) Prerequisite: Students must have obtained an average of Credit or higher grades in Design Studio and Design Studies courses for the last year.

This research based course aims to explore the ways in which we can inform design through intrinsic material system properties and fabrication systems

GROWING SMARTER MATERIAL SYSTEMS developing research with industry

Coordinator: Jane Burry and Nicholas Williams Time: Intensive workshop week of 6th - 10th May with Kevin Klinger, Ball State and i.m.a.d.e times to be agreed, outside of that week Location: Spatial Information Architecture Laboratory, Bld 100, Lvl 4 Reviews SIAL Presentation Space, Bld 100 Location: Lvl 4, The Long room For more details, visit the project’s blog: http://thermalreticulations.wordpress.com/ or contact mani.williams@rmit.edu.au

Course Description The aim of this course is to invite students from diverse disciplines to take part in design research conducted in SIAL. The course will participate in the development and relatisation of a t e a m w o r k d e s i g n a n d f a b r i c a t i o n p r o j e c t in collaboration with Kevin Klinger, Ball State University and imade. The course will be delivered through skill-based instruction and hands on project based learning . It will serve students in areas of study including but not exclusive to architecture, industrial design and engineering, involve novel approaches to digital and physical prototyping, advanced building simulation, structural performance of material systems, fabrication and assembly at full scale. It introduces students to design research methods that can be applied in design studio, postgraduate project work and professional practice. The course is delivered on a negotiated schedule of collaborative workshops with ad hoc technical support. Places are limited, students are invited to submit an expression of interest listing interests and relevant experiences to nicholas.williams@rmit.edu.au


This research based course aims to explore the ways in which we can measure the gap between the prediction of performance and the measurement of reality for facade design.

THERMAL RETICULATIONS the development of a SmartGeometry Cluster

Course Description The aim of this course is to invite students from diverse disciplines to take part in design research conducted in SIAL. The course will participate in the development of the SmartGeometry 2013 Cluster: Thermal Reticulations.

Coordinator: Jane Burry and Mani Williams Time: Wednesday and Thursday mornings, between 9.00am-12.00pm, starting 6th March Location: Spatial Information Architecture Laboratory, Bld 100, Lvl 4 Reviews SIAL Presentation Space, Bld 100 Location: Lvl 4, The Long room For more details, visit the project’s blog: http://thermalreticulations.wordpress.com/ or contact mani.williams@rmit.edu.au

The course will be delivered through skill-based instruction and hands on project based learning with an option to conduct own research explorations. It will serve students in areas of study including but not exclusive to architecture, industrial design and engineering. The student will have the flexibility to select from a wide range of topics including but not limited to: digital and physical prototyping, advanced building simulation, thermal performance of building materials, electronic sensors and data visualisation. It introduces students to design research methods that can be applied in design studio, postgraduate project work and professional practice. The course is delivered via weekly collaborative workshops with ad hoc technical support. Places are limited, students are invited to submit an expression of interest listing interests and relevant experiences to mani.williams@rmit.edu.au
