Life is a design thesis is a game

What do you see happens in a game of football for example?

OVERALL: Formation, playing patterns, positional sense, skills

INDIVIDUAL: Expectations in a team, tactical awareness, positional awareness, versatile, vision

There are similarities between in a design thesis studio and a football game, though this may seem far fetch to you.

The ability to ‘smell danger’ and ‘stepping out’ to challenge that is common on a football field especially if you are the defender. To ‘snuff out’ whatever dangerous moves that the opponent is starting to do.

In a way, the design thesis journey, you need to be pro-active. The opponent is yourself. The opponent in yourself is all the negativity – being lazy, being ignorant, being complacent and so on. Following your tutors blindly is one negativity.
