Multi-Disciplinary Learning Environments For The Design Professionals of Tomorrow

Time: 10:35 - 10:50

Date: Wednesday 16 October


The Barbara Hepworth Building for the School of Art, Design and Architecture at the University of Huddersfield develops a teaching philosophy to replicate real world practice where creative disciplines spontaneously interact to produce truly innovative answers to the design questions that today’s society and business world ask of us.

At the fulcrum of this concept is the Phidias lab, developing and exploiting techniques in immersive environments, virtual design/reality and augmented reality disciplines, engaging all students and providing a platform for the promotion of their personal design philosophies and experiences, signifying the interdependence of all the design disciplines and modern practice.
