DISE 3432 Disruptive Sustainable Design

Electiva de producto

Students will address sustainability in the real world, challenging to improve and / or build a sustainable system. Through a user centered design methodology, students explore, discover, interpret, limit and propose strategic interventions onto wicked problems. The proposed methodology looks to intervene with disruptive solutions to tackle the triple bottom line: people, planet and profit.

The course is structured in two parts, starting with an introduction to sustainability theory with emphasis on readings and discussions in class through systems, life cycle and design thinking students visualize sustainability through a macro lens, in order to identify the specificities of a problem. This is done to steer off a linear thinking approach. The second part will study the SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS set out by the United Nations in 2015. The goals are used to propose the topic for the course project. The project will apply systemic and holistic tools that reflect ethical values of a contemporary sustainable designer. The project seeks to foster concrete, viable and real solutions for complex, ambiguous and wicked problems.
