1. Northeast Hills of India: Design opportuinities for Water.
1. Northeastern Region of India: Design opportuinities for Water.
The team chose to focus on 12 specific design opportunities that each of the team members had identified as potential applications for water based design explorations for the region. This approach left out many of the exciting possibilities that had been discovered earlier in the sketch stage but somehow the group decided to move in a much narrower area of focus. Perhaps the decision was influenced by the limited time that was available and this gave us the platform to critique their approach since it seemed to miss out on the macro potentials that were seen in the original sketches. Further the team seemed to get fragmented in their approach and therefore failed to leverage the potential of a group think that was possible at this stage of the exploration and articulation.
