Carleton to Host 39th Annual Industrial Design Graduation Exhibition

Carleton University’s School of Industrial Design will host the 39th Annual Industrial Design Graduation Exhibition titled 17 x 17. After almost 40 years, faculty and students of the school continue to look at design from novel points of view.

When: Saturday, April 22 to Tuesday, April 25, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Where: Fourth Floor, Galleria, Unicentre, Carleton University
Info: This event is free and open to the public.

Alumni Night: April 22, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Media are invited to attend the event.

The exhibition features a broad range of work from students in the Industrial Design program. Fourth-year students have developed projects based on themes of sustainability – some inspired by the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals – while graduate students have designed social awareness campaigns for youth homelessness.

Selected work from first through third-year students include exercises in sketching and form manipulation with unique twists, such as faucet designs that emulate well-known brands, and proposed maquettes (small scale models) for outpatient accommodations at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto.

The exhibition is designed and maintained by the third-year class as a final project, incorporating feedback from faculty and the graduating students, as well as elements from a variety of proposals.
