Sustainability Themes for DCC2009: Roti, Kapada, Makkan, Rojgaar & Bijlee.

Prof M P Ranjan

The DCC class of 2009 have been assigned five sub themes around which they would explore the issues and perspectives of sustainability through the Design Concepts and Concerns course this year. The Foundation batch have now completed the first stage of their explorations where they map out only what the group already knows about the chosen subject from their life time of experience using the processes of brainstorming, classification and model building and visualization, nay “Visual Sense Making”. The sub themes are Roti, Kapada, Makkan, Rojgaar & Bijlee.
