Course Description

Students explore how design can communicate specific stories in the built environment using a variety of mediums and techniques. They learn how to leverage a combination of objects, imagery, materials, and colours plus other sensory devices to communicate an idea or ideas. Through discussion and precedent studies, students find examples of how designers frame a story using objects and ideas. They examine how designers convey context, meaning, clarity, and focus to objects and ideas and how they relate to specific narratives. Through this process, students develop their own small-scale narrative designs using what they have learned including how objects are conserved, mounted, and secured.

Registration in this course is restricted to students admitted to the Diploma in Design Formation.
