Undergraduate Course: Paper Engineering: product and packaging (LLLA07105)
|School||Edinburgh College of Art
||College||College of Humanities and Social Science
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 7 (Year 1 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||THIS IS A FOR-CREDIT ONLY COURSE OFFERED BY THE OFFICE OF LIFELONG LEARNING (OLL); ONLY STUDENTS REGISTERED WITH OLL SHOULD BE ENROLLED
Folding can be considered one of the most common of all design techniques and by exploring this activity through creasing, bending, hinging, corrugating, crumpling etc a set of structures will be produced.
Through exploration of repetition of individual elements, sequential scale change, surface treatment and material choice, a series of objects with an intended design function will be proposed.
Further development will consider structures capable of supporting, protecting, wrapping and packaging the product.
Entry Requirements (not applicable to Visiting Students)
||Other requirements|| None
