Architecture of the Object 2011, Design Entrepreneurialism
Cord Bowen, Adjunct Assistant Professor
This semester the students designed container-like objects that support the design process. In short, the objective of the class was to create a business plan around the production and sale of product. The students had a $200 budget with the requirement to complete a run of 10 objects or more. Peel Gallery (Steven Hempel) is a sponsor for the project and will be hosting an opening on May 26th from 6-8pm, 4411 Montrose Blvd. The products will remain at Peel for a few weeks.
