DPI52: Design for Social interaction in Neighbourhoods

Project proposed by Caroline Hummels, Jun Hu, Vera Winthagen, Philémonne Jaasma

Consequently, you will build from lo-fi to high-fi prototypes as of the first week, go into context to try them out, analyse and reflect on the process and outcome (documented in one-minute videos), and move to the new iteration. The process will be guided by reoccurring cross-coach feedback moments in which we discuss all the videos, so that we can share insights from different perspectives of the project directions amongst the project teams.
