  3. 3. WHY TIME? There is a correlation between velocity, and the health of the environment. Time is perceived as a barrier to more sustainable modes of living and working. Explorations are informed by long term, cyclical thinking. Sarah Hay MAA Design Candidate Thesis Presentation
  4. 4. TIME Time is fundamental to our understanding of the world. It is simultaneously a structure, a dimension, a quantity, a concept, infinite, and finite. It is rhythmic cyclical linear sequential. Our lives could be thought of as successions of events of various durations of various scales. Sarah Hay MAA Design Candidate Thesis Presentation

  8. 8. THESIS PAPER • slow design and the lost art of shifting gears • reprioritization of time in the design / decision making process • festina lente, seven generations and sustainments • defining a process / method for slow design • emotional durability / beyond ‘green design’ • use the thesis project RAFT as a vehicle to test the theoretical, to manifest slow design. Sarah Hay MAA Design Candidate Thesis Presentation
  9. 9. SLOW DESIGN A theoretical framework (Fuad-Luke 2004) • process: holistic, inclusive, permits evolution • desired outcomes: reduce resource flow and therefore consumption individual, socio-cultural, environmental well being • overlapping themes: tradition, ritual, experiential, evolved, slowness, eco-efficiency, open source, technology Sarah Hay MAA Design Candidate Thesis Presentation
  10. 10. LOCATING SLOW DESIGN Sarah Hay MAA Design Candidate Thesis Presentation
  11. 11. THESIS PROJECT>RAFT 1. process driven: built of salvaged and/or sustainable material improvisation and subjective preferences and intuition each material has a narrative, slow design exposes these through the act of making - together they build in layers of meaning to the object 2. outcome driven: floating platform for peaceful enjoyment and informal education participatory design requires people to help assemble and disassemble hands on learning – rope tying, lashing techniques Sarah Hay MAA Design Candidate Thesis Presentation

  19. 19. CONCLU SION I believe that sustainability can emerge out of the celebration of slowness, with rigorous sensibility towards the environment, quality of life and temporal rhythms which can be integrated into the designing of objects, structures and spaces over time.
