Developing design is like assembling Lego blocks, wherethe toy blocks are the elements for comprising designing. However, with the same Lego blocks, one can build a creative assembly while others can make ordinary ones.
Likewise, wellestablished design processes do not guarantee creative designs. Creativity is an ability that allows designers to bring something that others cannot even imagine.
Many believe that the ability to be creative is God-given or inborn, something that cannot be taught or trained. While it is true that many creatives have such talents in their genes, it is also a fact that creativity can be trained. Even for those who are creative, there are ways to “force” them to be even more creative.
This workshop - forced-creativity - will help students to learn some methods to produce creative and unthinkable designs.
