Glimpses into the Processes that Professional Designer Use

These videos provide a view into an architecture studio. Take note of how the critiques are managed and how the students present their work visually. Students’ work is self-directed, and they support each other in completing projects.

In this lecture, a designer discusses the human centered design process that her team used to redesign a school cafeteria to reduce food waste.

This documentary depicts Frank Gehry’s design process.

Resources for Pitching

Consider showing these videos in the third session, or email them to students as resources to help them prepare their video pitches.
