Our Senses evolved to work together – Vision influencing hearing, for example – Which means that we learn best if we stimulate several senses at once.
At BSD we believe that students need to implement what they learn as practical knowledge. Each semester we introduce a hypothetical project which they design, following a design process while interacting with our experienced faculty. We culminate this journey with an external jury, where working professionals from the field give their valuable input individually to the students.
Every semester a different topic is introduced to the students like a suite room, a café, an apparel showroom, an office, branding for a startup brand, Design App for business, etc. The student’s first research on their given topic, understanding the requirement in terms of function and solution. Along with the design proctor, an anthropometric analysis is done to create a foundation for the design process. The students then experiment with working around a concept and produce design options in terms of plans, layouts and, problem solving solutions. By building models, students then explore the 3rd dimension to visualize volume and better understand the project they are designing.
This design studio is an open discussion forum throughout the semester, where students and teachers from all semesters and batches interact and focus on design. At BSD we follow the concept that we all learn from each other through this design journey.
