I really appreciate this professor’s efforts to engage his students with the community they are designing for. I thought it was very interesting how through all of this professor’s years of experience engaging with students he discovered how our pre-existing notions construct the way we see. I also think that his experience with devising methods to break down our existing notions and bring people to understand each other’s points of views and perceptions are very valuable. It certainly is an extremely important aspect of design to understand the implications of our work and to understand others around us, since design is ultimately for the purpose of other people. Ultimately I found the reading very inspiring and interesting, and perhaps the principles of getting to know our audience pertains to us to as we get to know and work with our partners at The Point.
