This page of our website is dedicated to the accademic institutions that either work on Building Trust projects or share our views on design. Through working with students and teachers of design and architecture we hope to explore themes such as the duty of care, shelter provision, the rapid urbanisation of our built environments, the effects of global warming on design, the developing/ digital worlds and many more topics that relate to design and its place shaping our futures.
We will showcase the designs of students looking into migrant housing solutions in singapore here soon...
University of Karachi
Many thanks to the Department of Visual Studies, University of Karachi for taking on our School 4 Burma brief and producing some great design ideas you can see some of their students work along with other designs here.
Brunel University, Dept. of Design
We got some great design ideas from teh students at Brunel who developed a series of campaigns for 2012. Students looked at branding, focus, graphics, consumer interaction and the delivery of a clear message through a number of medias. You can see the results of this exciting project.
