One thing I didn’t metion before was the use of the theory of change for the project, this topic we saw on other subject and we had the task to use it in the project.

So this theory works, mainly, from the idea that one has to mesaure the advances…


Everything must come to an end, those are some wise words. And as with everything else, design is not the exception.

This is the last week of the project and I can’t help but to be a little sad about it. Probably more of a bittersweet flavor (because I really…


“Let me tell you a story…” that’s what the teacher wants us to visually say.

Last week, after everything that happened and with the rush upon us since this was our penultimate week, on some point I forgot to mention, the teacher said that we needed to make an infographic…


First hour this week we went on and presented last week’s work in front of the teacher and classmates, as usual. Also as usual, we got feedback on the three final ideas we exposed and the teacher agreed with us that the best option was the orchard-shelter.

After the expo…


Last week was explorative and expansive. This week was narrowing and contracting.

After all the work we put onto coming up with lots of possible ideas, it finally came the time to select them and start filtering to find the one that solved better the problem and had what the…

To start this part and to put us on creative mode, the teacher prepared a presentation on design projects, many super innovative and futuristic, some one might even call them crazy. …


First thing after holidays, we only got to work one day of the week in the project. It was nice, though, we got to get a good rest during the holidays and recharge batteries to come back full of energy and wanting to work on this.

Since it was only…


As in everything, there has always been a before “something”. Design is not the exception (especially design, one might say), but as humanity ages and ages in this planet, it becomes less and less probable to find something entirely new on this earth.

Same applies to us and everything we’ve…


The presentation from last week represented a checkpoint. as I said before, but still, we are not even close to finishing this. To finally wrap the investigation phase up and start the next phase of the design process, we needed to make the design statement: that was this week’s task.


This week, very close to ending the first part of the semester, we were assigned with a new task: to present our project so far.

After last week’s progress, the next thing to do was, evidently, to expose our new findings to the teacher and our fellow classmates, to get…
