UC Berkeley Design Fest: May 6-10, 2014

Berkeley’s Design Fest is an open house event where UC Berkeley students will show and tell their current design projects. This open house event will showcase the diversity and magnitude of the design activity occurring in departments throughout Campus. This year Design Fest will take place over several days:

Valuing Design: Design Innovation Seminar: Quality design is credited with providing a powerful competitive advantage to businesses and driving successful innovation. Metrics for measuring the value of design have included performance ratings (e.g., J.D. Power, Consumer Reports), financial metrics (e.g., stock performance, revenues, sales), expert evaluations (e.g., IDEA/Business Week, Consumer Electronics Society awards), creativity metrics (e.g., novelty, variety), process metrics (e.g., multidisciplinary teamwork, human-centered design), and societal impact (e.g., environmental, development in emerging regions). A survey of research in selected design metrics will be presented along with a discussion of what metrics might be used to differentiate UC Berkeley’s Design Innovation program. What skills do we hope our design graduates will have when they leave UC Berkeley? What role will our students play in creating a more meaningful and sustainable world? In this talk, design will be viewed broadly to include the design of physical products, software, services, experiences, new business models and policy.

Critical Making (NWMEDIA 290 / COMPSCI 294-85: Critical Making will operationalize and critique the practice of “making” through both foundational literature and hands on studio culture. As hybrid practitioners, students will develop fluency in readily collaging and incorporating a variety of physical materials and protocols into their practice. With design research as a lens, students will envision and create future computational experiences that critically explore social and culturally relevant technological themes such as community, privacy, environment, education, economics, energy, food, biology, democracy, activism, healthcare, social justice, etc. More at: make.berkeley.edu

More Next week: Design for Sustainable Communities CE209: Spring Design Reception and Open House. This course provides conceptual and hands-on experience developing sustainable and scalable solutions to alleviate poverty and address basic human needs. Students form interdisciplinary teams and partner with real world clients working to achieve positive impact in a resource constrained community. Teams and clients collectively define a design challenge to meet within the scope of the semester. Hands-on work is complemented by mini-lectures, short workshops, and case studies. Students come from a variety of backgrounds, including engineering, business, public policy, ERG, and chemistry, among others.
