Industrial Design students have presented "The Antigua Project" and "Conscious Design" as part of @wanteddesign Brooklyn, two projects under the leadership of faculty member Rebecca Welz. "The Antigua Project" showcases the work from a group of designers' recent trip to Antigua, Guatemala, where they collaborated with local weavers, woodworkers, seamstresses, and more to learn time-honored Mayan design processes and skills. "Conscious Design" focuses on innovative new design projects and products that embody our shared responsibility to help the natural world and our communities flourish, with an emphasis on biomimicry and waste reduction in oceans. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the work in our Stories and be sure to check out the exhibits on view at @industrycity now through May 21. . . . @pratt_sod #prattinstitute #pratt #prattschoolofdesign #prattdesign #wanteddesign #wanteddesignbrooklyn #industrycity #consciousdesign #antiguaproject
