Design Thinking With a Home In Mind

In design, one must put themselves in the right state of mind in order to come up with the proper solutions to design problems. Originally created for product design, Design Thinking has been adapted to every industry imaginable. Much of design thinking is about understanding human beings and their needs. To quote Dr. Prabhjot Singh, Director of Systems Design at the Earth Institute “We spend a lot time designing the bridge, but not enough time thinking about the people who are crossing it.” In this talk, we will explore the Design Thinking phases (Empathise, Define, Ideate, Prototype, Test) and how they relate to the world of home building.

Design surrounds us. The streets we walk down, the phones we tap on, the homes we live in. 4D EDU, in affiliation with 4D Design + Consulting, wants to help Sioux Falls home builders and homeowners understand “what the heck design is anyway?”. Enter Drinks & Design, a new event happening the end of every month at the Design Center in Downtown Sioux Falls. These gatherings will host a panel of design experts from a multitude of backgrounds and career fields, focusing in on home design in the Sioux Empire. And of course, there will be good food, beer & wine.
