During a workshop participants make multiple curiosities – small, conceptual projects – centred around a specific (desired) topic. A range of short assignments (pressure-cooker format) help them in questioning the topic, and finding new interpretations.



Systematic Design Thinking


How can Constraints in design challenge interpretation?


3rd year Visual Communication and New Media students at Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts

This is what we did


This second edition of C.o.c.o.i. China is centered around the topic Systematic Design Thinking.
During this 5-day workshop students researched & experimented how to let their designs start a dialogue and adapt, react or interact with their environment. By looking at relationships within the design, and relations it can form they made systematic designs with which they’ve challenged themselves and their audience to participate in a dynamic presentation of their findings during the workshop.

Discover, wonder, interact… Design is alive!


C.o.c.o.i. 荷兰设计工作坊中国行的第二期以系统设计思维为主题。在为期5天的工作坊中,同学们经过调研和实验,尝试让设计与受众对话,让作品适应环境,反应环境,或与环境互动。他们观察个体之间的关系,并将它们串联起来。他们尝试了系统设计,并通过多种多样的展示方式,邀请观众与他们的作品互动。
