The design Process Furniture for the street

As part of our topic Bigger Better Faster stronger, Ms Tito had given us a task and it was also about going through the design process. To start it off we had to identify a need within the senior block. Our need was about the student not respecting the street. So to fix it we had to come up with a solution to fix the problem. The solution that we came up with was to build furniture for our area so that the street becomes a place where the seniors will love and respect. Also that it won’t affect the stakeholders.

The next part to the design process was to research. We used our notebooks to get online to research some cool ideas with what we are building. Also we had to think about the important attribute such as Is it safe, innovative, practical, creative and size. As we researched our ideas we also reflect on the ideas that we research and by reflecting on it we did a P.M.I chart which stands for Positive Minus Interesting.

After all the research we did we than had to generate our ideas by taking our favourite designs and modifying it so that it becomes our own. We also had make sure that it was Creative, Innovated, Practical and if we wanted to we could also visualize some ideas that we wanted to design. As I was generating I was also evaluating at the same time.

The part that I’m up to now is Finding solution. I am making a prototype so that I can find the problems of making it and with the problems that I find I then change it so that it becomes practical to make.

This is where I am up to, I also feel good that I will get the things that needs to be done by the end of this term.
