Event description

Description

You’re invited to a fast paced, practical, online workshop to give you the tools to power up your entry for the 2018/19 RSA 'Grand Stations Design' brief.

Please note: this event is online only

During this 2 hour session we’ll take you on a whistle-stop tour through a rapid innovation process that can be applied to place-based projects such as the Grand Stations Design brief. You’ll have the chance to unpack the design brief, gain insights from inspiring, analogous examples and hear from our award partners, Network Rail.


Working in small, online breakout rooms, you’ll be guided through a step by step, place-based design process including:


  • learn how to spot useful insights

  • create a good design question

  • generate ideas and get familiar with how to bring your ideas to life, quickly and cheaply


Each team will use a curated slack channel throughout the session to collaborate, share and record your group’s journey through the process.


There will also be an opportunity to reflect and share your learnings with other participants.


Please note, this online session is highly interactive, participatory and fast-paced. We’re looking for enthusiastic and committed student designers from a variety of design and creative backgrounds to take part, passionate about applying your skills to tackle real world problems and a willingness to engage with interactive and collaborative learning tools online.


What you will learn:


  • Principles behind design for place-based change

  • Approaches and tips for user engagement and prototyping in the built environment

  • How these can be applied to the Grand Stations Design brief


All participants must register via eventbrite and join relevant slack channel (link to be sent through eventbrite prior to event) ahead of the online event.



FAQs:


Will I be asked to share ideas or where I’ve got to with my project for the Grand Stations Design brief?

No - this workshop is to give you a range of tools and approaches that will support you to create a strong Student Design Awards entry, particularly designed to support the Grand Stations Design brief. We will not be asking you to share your ideas or design process.


Will this give participants an unfair advantage for the Grand Stations Design brief?

This workshop will not be supporting participants to develop ideas tailored to the Grand Stations Design brief, but all the tools and techniques we’ll be practicing will be highly relevant and useful for students to apply to their Student Design Awards entry and any other place-based design projects they might be developing.


Can I join this workshop if I’m working on a different Student Design Awards entry (not Grand Stations Design)?

Yes, but priority will be given to students working on entries for the Grand Stations Design brief.
