Taught By: Faculty TBA

Section: E

CRN: 6449

Credits: 3

In this course students will be introduced to three-dimensional design and fashion objects through specific processes of making. Wood as principal material – from raw blocks to fabric-like veneers – leads the students’ investigations, but a wide selection of diverse and composite processes present in local manufacturing will be used to explore aspects of 3D-printing, rapid prototyping, injection molding, wool felting, etc. Students will also participate in theoretical discussions on materials, progressive craft traditions and ecologies to develop and prototype design ideas, to be realized during a four-week intensive in the Val Gardena.

Open to: Parsons upper-level undergraduates, by application only. NOTE: This studio is offered in connection with a fully funded four-week intensive to begin in mid-May 2018 at the innovative design manufacture 3DW in the Val Gardena on the border between Italy and Austria. Flights, accommodation, materials and expert tuition will be provided for ten students from across Parsons.

This course aims to simulate an impact incubator that fosters critical engagement and research towards circular design practices and global production systems, with a focus on Post Consumer Waste within the Men's Apparel industry. The interdisciplinary teams will be expected to demonstrate an intense commitment to various research methodologies that quantify impact, while developing innovative creative systems to inform every stage of their 2D / 3D process development. Furthermore, an insightful branding/marketing strategy incorporating viability and adoption by the Hugo Boss brand is a required deliverable for each one of the project outcomes. The course is meant to be a collab experience in every aspect requiring each team to include students enrolled in the BBA and BFA programs. Each team will also have access to a $1000 material and supplies budget along with garment construction technicians that help them realize their final prototypes. Students will also have the opportunity to be mentored by a cohort of Parsons faculty members, technical experts, and industry professionals, alongside the core instructor, through weekly seminar lectures, tech labs, and group tutorials. The 15-week course culminates with a university wide exhibition of the process and final prototypes, scholarship funds, internships at Hugo Boss headquarters, and exposure at the Hugo Boss NYC store windows.
