Design Discovery 2016 - Day 4: Cardboard Sitting Device Construction
On Day 4, the students were introduced to the Cardboard Sitting Device Project. This assignment consists of taking donated cardboard sheets, glue, and string and turning it into a sitting device that can also serve as a table. The sitting device is meant to hold up at least (1) of the camper, and/or the counselor. This project teaches the students about material property and designing with a function in mind.
What is involved in the professions of Architecture and Interior Design? What do design students study while in college? How can a person best prepare for an education in these fields? Many people who think about architecture or interior design have these or similar questions that should be answered before they make a decision about their career. Although we are all affected daily by the built environment, design education and the professions of architecture and interior design are often not fully understood by prospective students.
The College of Architecture Art + Design (CAAD) at Mississippi State University is offering an eight-day summer workshop that is intended to answer many of the questions about architecture and interior design as a field of study and as a profession. The major goal of the workshop is to simulate the information, skill and the intensity required for a design education, while providing a clear insight into the practice. With this experience it will be possible for the participants to make an informed career decision about architecture and its related disciplines.
