Speculative Design + Research Paper // Michele Washington, Exhibition and Experience Design

This paper proposes a transformative framework for how Speculative Design—and more specifically, research methods—can be used as a model for student engagement and to enhance learning outcomes. The goal is for my students to become better critical thinkers and be more experimental with strategically tackling innovative, socially relevant design solutions. By prompting design students to shift more towards imaginative thinking to begin exploring new frameworks and new methods for design research processes.

Design Within Reach—Graduate Thesis

Finalist 2019
Design Within Reach

This practicum project borrows from the narrative qualities of a typical exhibition as a means to guide the design of both public spaces and exhibition halls. Through the examination of the cultural context of the museum’s theme and location, design guidelines and the pedigree of the adaptive reuse, this project gave the designer a better understanding of the function of museums, the role of culture and heritage in design, and how to design a better visitor experience for all.
