Universal Design

One of the short term courses at the HS Hannover was a live project that was titled MIN+ DIN based on the Universal Design theme. The course was research plus concept based, for solving various problems for a small city called Minden, that is of great importance in the history of Germany.

The course allowed me to understand the nuances of German needs and problems at a very basic level. I was able to understand things about Universal Design a lot better and apply my understanding as well. Looking at details and problem solving based on immediate needs was something that I learnt very well.

There was also a certain connect that I was able to draw with regard to Universal Design and the current research topic that I am looking at.

The course culminated with an exhibition of our solutions for the town. The project was well taken by the town residents.

I hope to be able to apply the learning to my research project.
