Design of the Imminent Future

Alejandro Zaera-Polo

This class will lead students through a complete design thinking cycle (empathizing, reframing, ideation, prototyping, testing, proposing) focused on proposing potentially real entities, products, services, structures, activities, or widely acceptable changes to policy for the adoption of new technology.
