      Craft, concept and thinking are synthesized in the act of making
      Thoughtfully working with our hands is a creative act
      The shops must be integrated into curriculum
      Shops should evolve to incorporate mechanical engineering,
      electronics, software, media, and DIY culture
   Deep Quality
      Move from surface quality to highly refined realizations of
      powerful ideas
      Focus on criticality, research, strategy, systems design, invention,
      risk taking, and strong conceptual development
      Graduate programs should influence undergrad

      to the academic life of ACCD
      Teach adaptability to new constraints, opportunities, skills and
      concepts
      Embrace risk taking
   Constant Innovation in Programs
      Culture must support constant change in curriculum
