The third and final project is a culmination of all the ideas and themes explored in the Experience by Design course. This project uses the actual physical space of Orvieto as the context for students to design a compelling or poetic message.

The following brief was provided to introduce Project 3: Poetic Place: Orvieto.

Phase A: Pitching the Design Concept

This project aims to develop three important design skills: 1. Visualizing and communicating a proposed idea professionally and effectively (pitching), 2. Successfully executing and materializing the final design, and 3. Properly documenting and presenting the final design. Phase A of this project focuses on skill #1 of requiring students to plan and present their proposed design idea to the class for critique.

The following are images of presentations/critiques in which students introduced their design concepts.

Phase A: Phase A (continued): Studio Activity

Students took suggestions and critique after the Phase A design presentations and began to construct their designs. The studio became the preliminary space for working out structural issues before transporting any work to site-specific locations in Orvieto.

The following images show a very active studio environment prior to the final installations.

Phase B: Execution and Professional Documentation of Final Designs

After the majority of work was completed in the studio, students transported and installed their typographic message in a selected physical location in Orvieto.

Emphasis was placed on properly documenting the final design in the space, since all the work would be temporary. A maximum of five high quality photographs documented the final project. These photographs were shown to the class during the final critique.

The following are some of the final designs for this project:
