Design and Decay

This week at C:/dags, D3 facilitators helped Mr. Gomez with a new project he’s starting in his Geography class. Students will reference topics addressed in the book The World Without Us, by Alan Weisman  to predict how nature would re-capture their campus in the sudden absence of human existence.  Some groups will also propose how their campus and community could be improved by applying principles of ecological and sustainable design.  We assisted Mr. Gomez in creating a site plan and model of the campus and surrounding neighborhood context to aid in the students brainstorming process.

The D3 Lab is a collaboration between the Pearson Foundation's New Learning Institute, COMMONstudio design consultancy, and Nightingale Middle School in Los Angeles. It is one part idea lab, one part design and production facility, and one part "do tank." It is a place where students come to nurture and cultivate ideas, tackle big and small problems, and take action.
