This semester’s study has made a great difference in my view of environmental design. Overall, I enjoyed this course very much. The debate course enabled me to look at some opinions dialectically, it is a way of learning that I enjoyed during the course, I learned about relevant materials from many aspects, and made me […]

After today’s lecture, I was impressed by the new material part talking about the project which make fungi into a boat, and then I searched about this material, and it was fascinating because some people can make fungal material items like furniture through 3D printing. I continued looking for biomaterials, and I found that some […]

In this weeks’s lecture, we bring the word ‘ANTHROPOCENE’ again,I learned that anthropocene represents the embodiment of human creativity and technological progress, but it also has negative impacts on ecological balance, including climate change, resource depletion, biodiversity loss, and pollution. Speaking of the various impacts of human activities on the earth system, It reminds me […]

Based on the lecture this week, I watched a documentary called ‘The Story of Plastic’. It explores the production, use and disposal of plastics and reveals the danger to oceans, wildlife and human health. Plastics are widely used in packaging, daily necessities, building materials and other fields, in part because of their lightweight, durable and […]

This week I read some books about innovative design in the context of environmental protection, including biological design, innovative materials, urban design and picture book. -Myers, W. and Antonelli, P. (2014) Bio design: Nature, science, creativity. London: Thames and Hudson. This book reveals that humans and nature have always had a symbiotic relationship, but with […]

In the fifth week, I read the book “Cradle to Cradle”, from which I learned that at the end of today’s industrial design system, some products are not effectively reused, and it becomes a one-way cradle-to-grave model, a fundamental flaw in design itself that began with the Industrial Revolution. Cradle to Cradle(C2C) for Design is […]

This week we held a debate on the topic of whether designers have innovated their design under conditions of environmental crisis. Through this debate, from both team I learned that designers are responding to environmental crises and changes. Various innovations and new attempts are being carried out to try to create new more environmentally friendly […]

In the third week of lectures, I learned that the consumer’s values and the benefit of some groups are related to the problems that design should solves. Since I was also attended  product design courses in my undergraduate study, this also caused me to think more deeply.  As a product designer, I only thought about […]

According to the lectures and preliminary readings from Fallan and Jørgensen in the second week, here are some of my thoughts. I will further supplement them after the reading group if I got some new ideas form others.
