The design prototype is about the process, the technological prototype is about results of research and development and the speculative prototype is about narration. Then what is the conceptual prototype about?
It might be about the process of forming a new theory, or putting that theory to the test, but it is mostly about making the “impossible” connection trough synthesizing disciplines, challenging the arduous one-way process of transferring theoretical thinking into material housing. It is the ultimate interdisciplinary quest.
This course will explore the relationship between thinking and doing, with a goal of developing a methodology on how to transfer abstract ideas into physical models and prototypes and vice versa.
