Birth Space Workshop: January 2023

Calling student designers who care to care for an online design workshop over three days 24th, 26th and 27th January.

We all have one thing in common, everyone of us has been born. In one way or another. We are and someone could tell the story of our arrival. The experience for those present is one of the most profound of being alive, but the places in which birth happens does not always reflect the significance of the event.

If you are interested in ….

    • Exploring storytelling as a design generator?
    • Considering how design could care?
    • Collaborating in a cross disciplinary team?

Join our third Birth Space Workshop, informed by user experiences, designing alongside Midwifery students and come and imagine the alternative. The workshop is open to students from all architecture and design courses from Foundation to Masters and to recent graduates.

The work shop in brief: We will guide you through working in groups online using Teams and Miro. You will attend short presentations, engage in group tasks and seminar type discussions. You will make broad design proposals based on the findings of your collated stories. The workshop concludes with a presentation of group findings and a lively discussion.
