    The Summer Course – Product Design I - A Sun Shade for Madrid Rio, will introduce you to product design and to its related creative methodologies, through a project-based learning approach.

    In your first week, you will discover Madrid’s key design locations and learn to generate, develop, and defend your design ideas, using simple tools to represent your ideas, from freehand drawings to block models.

    During your second week, you will experiment with your own hands, using basic design materials and fabrication techniques to produce designs and small models for a real project: an urban sun shade that will be installed in the Madrid Rio urban park (Prize Veronica Rudge 2015 for sustainable urban spaces, Harvard University) to protect pedestrians from the summer sun and heat.

    The workshops will be held at the School of Architecture, Engineering and Design of the Universidad Europea and in locations in the center of Madrid such as Matadero Madrid or DIMAD.
