DS18_2015/16: Architecture, Energy, Matter 3, Brief 3: Global Flows

In the second stage of DS18_2015/16, students mapped an entity – an item, commodity, practice, product, technology or service  – from the scale of the globe – to the scale of where it enters, circulates, and impacts on human and non-human life in the Maldives. This was undertaken as a way of further refining a site and topic for design.
