TA: Shail s ShethCraft+Future=? Speculative Interior Practices
The studio dwells into discussing the positions of craft in contemporary interior architecture practices. With a combination of research and design methods, the studio focuses on envisaging future directions of craft productions. The studio will be largely divided into two parts: the first part uses intensive research techniques to establish a theoretical position of craft and the second part intends to test the position through a design problem. The studio involves rigorous reading sessions, theoretical analysis, field studies, hands-on explorations with craft techniques along with design discussions.
With an interdisciplinary approach towards design, this course uses research and design techniques to address a design situation. The studio is largely divided into four modules, looking at the idea of future of craft. The four modules also emphasize the learning outcomes of the course: Know the contemporary position of craft, Ideate possibilities about the vision of the future, Develop an individual position for its future and Make relevant design ideas representing the vision of future of craft.
