TRANS DISCIPLINARY: NEW METHODS AND PROCESS FOR TEACHING CREATIVE TRAJECTORIES AND SYNTHESIS

D. Nicholas, S. Anandan

Drexel University (UNITED STATES)
Speculative design research and tools for the design of urban spaces in underserved communities with a focus on the residential interior for well-being is the focus of this emerging form of teaching methodology. Science, human-centered design, and research come together to create a mentorship-driven method that includes critical thinking and problem solving. A research-driven collaborative and mentorship approach, this method includes human centered/design thinking processes, interior materials, bench science, visualization and advances in building science within the urban home. This paper will examine speculative design research, informed design processes and trans-disciplinary collaboration at the heart of a set of novel advances and improvements in the built environment with a transdisciplinary group of researchers: URBN STEAMlab. This method builds on interdisciplinary immersive research courses and sessions centered on health, human-centered problem solving, sustainability and creativity.

Through a research agenda that includes a trans-disciplinary laboratory exploring urban sustainability through science and informed design, and center for well-being in the designed environment- the authors have had the opportunity to develop novel approaches to human issues and the designed environment. This teaching method has developed to encompass strong collaboration in design and science, and the process is built on opportunities for trans-disciplinary technology, science, and design-based research. The exploration will include a set of best practices for collaboration with a range of students, disciplines, and methodologies. The work includes the description of project-based learning, design thinking, human-centered design and informed design teaching to a diverse set of students at many levels and from many disciplines. An informed loop of design, science, and human-centered methodologies, here creates innovation and novel advances in the urban environment.
