Project title: Designing Ourselves: Investigating the Design-Culture Feedback Loop

Countries: Dominican Republic, Uganda, Australia, Greece

Description: “Rather than focus on how one facet of the design industry interacts with culture, my project will provide a broad perspective on multiple facets of design. On each leg of the journey, I will study how different regions insert cultural-thinking into the engineering design process. The experiences collected throughout this journey would then be used to construct a design process for myself and future designers, one that would help anticipate the impact of design on culture.”
