Public events and venues generate More than 2.4 lbs. of waste


Home to 400+ annual festivals. These festivals generate a lot of trash and recyclables.

L O U I S I A N A

30% of recyclables end up in landfills.

Design an interactive vessel that encourages people to recycle at three Louisiana festivals. Third year collaboration project with environmental organizations Speak and Keep Louisiana Beautiful Inc.


Cans are manually compacted

Can rolls down ramps into the vessel

Funnel cans into bin Table moves and can rollls into vessel

Trash bounces off of the pegs on the way down

Roll can up ramp and into cut out Eyes are where recyclables go


Thickness - Exterior walls 2 sheets of 1” cardboard - Interior Walls 1 sheet of 1” cardboard

Openings will catch stray cans

30 o

Railings will stop cans from rolling off of vessel

Angle of ramp

Receptacle bin - Will be removed from exterior of vessel

Adjustments Made

The vessel was not eye level and got lost in the crowd of people.

The can roll was turned upright and repurposed to become a more visible.

The cardboard became saturated with leftover beer.

Painted white to protect vessel from leftover beer.

Materials that could be recycled was not clearly communicated.

Cans Only

Easy to read graphics were implemented.

Inspiration

Translate design language of architect Tom Kundig into a product.

Design Criteria

The product embodied the following criteria that I designed in response to Chicken Point Cabin.


Portable

Durable

Crisp Sound

Light Weight

Functional

Innovative

Affordable

Compatible


86%

of 100 UL Lafayette students that were surveyed are not satisfied with their built in computer speakers and have resorted to purchasing external speakers.

52% find that external speakers are not durable.

17% find that the sound is not crisp.

75%

find that external speakers are not loud enough.


Competitor Analysis

Justin Yu, the associate editor at CNET.com, gave the Creative D100 a 5 star rating. Taking time to figure out why the Creative D100 received a high rating allowed me to gain valuable insight into what users expect from a portable speaker.

Ultra portable wireless speakers Diverse connectivity options

Light Weight

Versatile power options

Two powerful 3" drivers


Open and closes to protect speaker Folds to fit

inside a bag

Back connects

Stand flips Stand folds

Back of speakers connect together When not in use the stand will close to protect the speaker


Lever allows stand to open and close

Use a kickstand to the support speaker

Kickstand will fold up inside of the speaker when not in use

Place the kickstand in one of the notches to point the speaker in different directions

49%

drive to and park on campus.

cross-disciplined UL Lafayette students were surveyed regarding their preferences on commuting to and from school. Here始s what we found:

10%

walk to campus.

38%

ride the bus to campus.

3%

bike to campus.


80% Safer intersections

Adequate Bicycle Parking

More bicycle paths

of surveyed students would choose to bike to campus if there were:

Separate bicycle and pedestrian paths


Streets and intersections that are able to support bicycle paths and shared lanes.
