2015 INDONESIA GLOBAL DESIGN STUDIO
Located in Indonesia, this subject provided students with the opportunity to be immersed in a design culture quite different from what they have previously experienced. They were challenged to develop skills in cross-cultural collaboration, to consider how local context shapes creative practice and to use design skills to research and process challenging environments. The focus was on design responses to environmental challenges. We considered the reduction and reuse of waste in the context of rapid economic development and urbanisation.
Students from the design faculty at UTS (University of Technology Sydney) were hosted by the UMN (Universitas Multimedia Nusantara), forming interdisciplinary and transnational groups with UMN students to research local stories and situations that informed collaborative design outcomes.
Locations: Salatiga, Central Java + Universitas Multimedia, Nusantara, Tangerang, Indonesia
Dates: 1-13 July, 2015
