Final Critique: Deconstruction/ Reconstruction with Ayse Birsel


It was a whirlwind critique as students presented their final work for Ayse Birsel's Deconstruction/Reconstruction 5-week intensive. From the course description: "This course introduces a process that encourages designers to quickly abstract the products of design down to their constituent parts; to reinterpret those parts based on a set of criteria (including point of view); and to build them back up to create new instantiations with new design potential. Students are encouraged to think abstractly and with daring, and to question assumptions about design, form, and intent." [Photos: Kathryn McElroy]
