Collaborative Research Model for Designing Sustainable Water Usage Solutions
MetadataShow full item record
The paper describes the process followed and the insights gained from a collaborative design project between design students in the UK and in India. The aim of the project centred on the design and development of new sustainable water solutions for users in both Ahmedabad and Cardiff. Reflections are given on the benefits and drawbacks of using such a collaborative design research model in terms of developing culturally appropriate solutions for two contexts of use; the effectiveness of prototyping and user testing remotely; and the benefits and challenges of undertaking a design research collaboration.
