2013 Summer Semester

icon-future-foodSTUDIO | Future of food
Professor: Susanna Hertich

We looked into the potential future of food in a world where the taste of strawberries comes from wood shavings. We explored ways in which design can contribute to the discussion about the future of food by imaging how products, services, and tools would be tomorrow. Each group worked on a special concept, which had a scientific research as a background, and they built on top of that information their whole project. The results were amazing, very different and from many different points of views. Go to the projects!>

icon-web-design2D WEB DESIGN | Portfolio
Professor: Diego Vasquez

In this class, everybody was supposed to work on their own online portfolio. The process for designing it consisted in two stages: sketching and developing. The sketches were brought to class to get feedback. After getting the comments to improve, we started to develop them by getting acquainted with CMS platforms. Go to the projects!>

Professor: Sandra Giegler

Food was also the main topic in this class, but with a different point of view. All of the students were split into groups for two main tasks through a lottery. Each group had a country to work on. The first task was to present the country’s food; the second was to design something for their country’s cuisine, which was based on the results got from the first task. Go to the projects!>

PHOTOGRAPHY | Reduction to max
Professor: Klaus Pollmeier

We reviewed and discussed photos which fit the concept: to bring the small worlds that sometimes go unperceived to something visible. In groups or individually, we worked on our ideas about this topic. Go to the projects!>

icon-future-scenariosWORKSHOP | Future Scenarios
Professor: Moritz Gekeler

The idea was to introduce a special method to help us imagine the concepts related to future, specifically future of hunger in the world. It was a teamwork project and in the end we created one persona, one company, and one country, which we thought they would fit to the 3 pessimistic, optimistic and normal scenarios that we created for our imaginative future.

EXCURSION | Amsterdam
Professors: Joachim Krausse, Sandra Giegler, Uwe Gellert

We had an amazing trip to the Netherlands. A lot of museums and heritages were visited. For this excursion, each person was responsible for a short presentation in front of the museum before the group visit. We had also the task of finding a particular detail that attracted us from the city, either an object or a costume or a tradition to talk about it afterwards on a presentation. Go to the post!
