All the groups were ready with their presentations. Each group had to gather information on their problem with pictures and videos. The main problem our group identified was the “lack of recreational space”, the ISDI campus is a concrete building and there is no space where the students and faculty can cut away from their daily routine. Here is how we went about our research:
1. Problem identification:
2. Campus research:
We found empty unused spaces that could be put to use.
3. ISME campus:
The ISME and ISDI campus have the same layout but in ISME there are these small ideation corners where the students and faculty can sit and relax.
4. Looking at recreational spaces in other universities:
We did research on some of the recreational spaces in India’s design colleges.
After presenting our research to our peers and faculty, they appreciated our comparative research and the way we went about with it. We were told that we went a little into the solution part of the research and that we should cut back to the ground research.
It was also interesting to look at the different ways people went about with their research, one group had an entire video of their space and the problems identified. Towards the end of the class, we just individually spoke to the faculty about the next part of the projects
