  • Transcript

    • 1. The project Opendesign+
    • 2. The project Opendesign+ deals with contemporary problems in the field of design in its various aspects and opens new opportunities for visualization and creation as a discipline free and open. It contributes to the development of collaborative practice and the creation of network of young designers to a growing diffusion of knowledge and culture of open design in society.
    • 3. The project Opendesign+ supports an alternative design methodology, based on free exchange of information. Opendesign+ provides the platform to promote collaboration in design open source, and seeks to establish a balance between individual independent creators and collective power of collaboration. Opendesign+ hopes that this method would promote the open design and design projects for the greater benefit of society.
    • 4. The project Opendesign+ is an innovative introduction to carry out a system and therefore delivering more benefit to a community as a whole. Designers alone do not know what is best for the users; (they see them through the artificial, biased and manipulative filter of marketing) therefore the user group should be included into the design community to re-establish the direct link between designers and users. This release of restrictions on heightening ideas will aid integration and evolution.
    • 5. A challenge or problem is submited by an external organization or by the members of  Opendesign+ project. The problem is given a peer review by Design faculty in a participating school and made accessible in the Opendesign+ database.
    • 6. How does it work ?
    • 7. The Design faculties in a participating school will present the project to the students in the course.
    • 8. The students, working in teams, investigate the state of the art around technology related to the challenge, establish design constraints, brainstorm design concepts, then design and manufacture prototypes.
    • 9. As with any design course, at the end students give a final report and project presentation, which may include recommendations for future work.
    • 10. In all stages of the project, teachers and students collaborate with the different groups in other schools using the tools and platform Opendesign+.
    • 11. A first phase of exploration and definition of the objectives, leading to the final brief of the project will organize the community and define the rules and the roles. Committors: (faculty and student leaders) Contributors: (students who participate in project), Users: (other student volunteers from the schools involved).
    • 12. A second phase laying the groundwork of the study and permit each contributor of the community to propose ideas and concepts. During this phase a first selection and a first synthesis will take place with the participation of potential users member of the community.
    • 13. A third phase will develop the concepts or selected, the work will be divided into groups supporting a part of the study (management of space, furniture, services, etc..).
    • 14. A final phase will select the concept that best meet the objectives defined in the preliminary phase, and each group will make the adaptation to different local contexts in France and Asia (materials, culture, etc..)
    • 15. All research, concepts and work produced during the study will be licensed "creative common" and available for free sharing for the community. A book and a website bringing together the different phases of the study will be published at the end of the experiment.
    • 16. The challenge :
    • 17. Developing student housing is challenging because the low rents students can afford does not support the high operating expenses and construction costs usually encountered.
    • 18. The deficit in the balance of trade between western and Asian countries has created a surplus of shipping containers that has lowered their price because they are often more expensive to ship back empty than to build new in Asia.
    • 19. Now many experiments has shown how to use the latter problem to solve the former, cure a shortage of student housing and create a new lifestyle that students find desirable. Students ... find it difficult and expensive to live in the city. In any countries the universities do not provide housing for their students. Today, huge number students are on a waiting list for student housing....
    • 20. Reusing shipping containers is the ultimate in sustainability, using far fewer materials and far less embodied energy than any kind of construction.But it could be difficult to find containers that are in reasonably similar condition, and reconditioning and conversion costs with local labor could be too expensive. Therefore, the project can use an existing container factory in China to construct and convert the containers in a continuous sequence, which lowered the costs significantly.
    • 21. The housing container will be consider as modular finished unit.
    • 22. The first step will be started by Design management students in Seoul
