Richardson Design Center

The aesthetic of the design center will reflect the innovative, immersive and inclusive learning environment within. The end-users will be students and faculty who will have access to cutting-edge resources and partnerships with industry. Students and faculty will be immersed in a process of “design thinking” which draws on methods from engineering and design, and combines them with ideas from the arts, tools from computer sciences, means from construction management, and insights from the business world. The ultimate goal is to learn by doing--with a bias toward action and iteration where each cycle brings stronger insights, greater collaboration, more unexpected solutions and greater innovation.
