The course is divided in four conceptual blocks. Each block consist of four lectures and one exercise. Each exercise will have clear constraints and must be handed at the end of the block. A block typically spawns two weeks. It is expected that students work in self-arranged groups of no more than 5 people. Each of the first four hand-ins consists of the prototype result from the exercise, plus a written assignment. Each written assignment should be of a minimum of 5000 words, excluding references. The final hand-in should include all the previous material, that is, the 4 prototypes and the essays, to be evaluated by the course manager and the external examiner. Prospective students should notice that this course does not expect more than rough but interesting and innovative prototypes. However, the written essays should address what elements of the theory each prototype focuses on, how the design process took place, and how the prototype can contribute to better understanding the theories presented in class
Written assignment, group evaluation.
