Dean's Award: Commmunity Building Outside Own Field

Prize: Award or honor granted for a specific work


The idea of Experimental Textile Design, with Maarit Salolainen leading it, is to open textile knowledge to other disciplines. The joint ARTS/ENG course provides an opportunity for design and engineering students to explore experimental design approaches and fabrication processes. A shared learning process combines textile knowledge and an engineering approach renewing both areas. Students develop ideas among peers from different backgrounds through collaboration.
