Design on the Move - Transporting Interiors that Empower Social Responsibility

Institution

Eastern Kentucky University

Abstract

In a world that struggles to meet basic needs in impoverished areas and disaster relief situations, there is room for new thinking in design. As Interior Design students at EKU we have tackled tough issues of our global social and sustainable responsibility. And, we have put the designs on the road, the water, and the air to bring "Design to the People". Thinking of spaces that are transportable, we have used the tools of our trade to solve problems that center around basic human needs: shelter, food, water, and supporting services. These unique creations will serve as an “Oasis” and solution-based process centers. We hope this project will engage, stimulate, and inspire designers and consumers to think not about what design can do for us, but what we can do for design.
