Project Name: Mainstream
For me, design is a creative means of interacting with the outside world. It enables me to see the world from other people’s perspectives and to explore the field of human-centered design with an open mind. In both my first degree in Culinary Arts and now in Product Design I have been heavily influenced by my interest in human-centered design. Designing with other people’s needs and wants in mind gives me a fulfilling goal in life. Mainstream is a site-specific client project that implements human-centered needs by providing more seating for users. It draws inspiration from the site’s history, such as the river that once ran through the area and incorporates this into the design.
