Some pointers from Harah and Nur to consider:

  • The residencies seemed to cover different areas and you have gathered a lot from that experience
  • Based on the various residencies, how did you settle on an “inter-generational” focus?
  • What are some of the take-away insights and findings from the residency that will help bridge into your design lab? I am not getting the real problem or gaps in your research.
  • It would be interesting to see how you intend to explore the difficulties/challenges of inter-gen relationships through your design briefs – perhaps these objectives can be further clarified.
