Essay Prompt

How is design a product of context?

Consider in your own words how designed objects, spaces, structures and systems may—or may not—reflect the economic, social, cultural and political situations within which they are produced. Draw on and discuss at least one specific example to support your response.

This is not a test! You are encouraged to think broadly and creatively, and to express yourself in concise, coherent prose. You should feel free to bring in examples that draw on the subject matter of DsnS 183, but you are also encouraged to use examples from outside of what was presented in that course. You may refer to any subject matter that will help you to get your point across.
