Intro to Food Design

Spring 2023

Taught By: Carolin Mees

Section: A

CRN: 13216

Credits: 3

This course is designed as a source of inspiration to get students interested and involved in the rapidly growing field of Food Design. Taken separately, both Food and Design are highly relevant subjects onto themselves; Food is our most basic need, Design is one of our most valued platforms for innovation and problem solving. Food Design is an emerging trans-discipline concerned with any action that can improve our relationship to food in a variety of ways, contexts, and instances. These actions can include the focus on the design of objects, spaces, processes, practices and systems. This course is meant to empower students with the impact that design can have on concrete situations they encounter on a daily basis with regards to food. The course is set up in a mixed "design studio / seminar” format, with conceptual class discussions and practical design components. The scope is kept close to familiar and immediate issues that students can grasp and identify with. The individual projects each student works on are related to different perspectives on food design. The projects can relate to personal lives and surrounding environment and, to engage design issues relating to food through a learning experience in which ongoing results are examined by firsthand experience.
