  • Kids are required to go to school wearing shoes Jennifer Francois

    Even the poorest people would want to have a shoe [rather than a sandal]. Fabrice Marcelin

    In Haiti, 50% of primary school age children are not enrolled in school

    No Shoes =No Education

  • In Haiti, 50% of primary school age children are not enrolled in school

    bike tires?commonly not recycledprevalent in Haiti (used for strikes)easy to cut and shape!

    bike tires were easy to manipulate, readily available and very durable!

    1 bike tire = 8 shoe soles

  • Initial renders and research on

    kids shoes made us focus on an easy fastening system and heel support.

    In order to make a simple shoe I referred to medieval shoe templates to construct simple prototypes

  • original 3 models explored different ways to construct the shoe and address the fastening system.

    inner liner = more structure

    button clip just right!

    one template,too weak

    rubber opening, too fragile

    3 templates, stronger

    model iteration

  • Strapping wing eliminates shoelaces and provides large opening to easily slide foot.

    An average of 8 soles can be made from a single tire

    Materials

    Custom buttons hook, inspired by Haitis geographic shape. Alternatives such as standard buttons or bent stainless steel buttons can also be used.

    Fabric is cut into templates and hemmed, bike tires are cut and flattened, and button is

    Pieces are packaged and shipped to rural manufacturing stations.

    Pieces are assembled in rural manufacturing stations by local employees.

    A portion of the shoes are distributed to school children and the remainder to the textile factory.

    Shoes are sold in Haitian stores and around the world via the internet.

    Materials are imported to the textile factories in Port-au-Prince.

    The textile factories in Haiti provide adequate tooling and training. Shoes made for school children are given as charity while the remaining become an export.

    Locals are hired in facilities established by the schools

    Apparel exports accounted for two-thirds of the countrys total exports in 2008

  • Impact

    education, sanitation, progress,beauty, pride, empowerment

    A sustainable industry is much needed in Haiti, a country constantly devastated by natural disasters and inefficient organizational resources.

    How can a remote control be more universally appealing?SKIN REMOTE

  • Difficult to pick up What about a more 3 dimensional form?

    Difficult to pick up

    Potential Users

    ElderlyArthritis Patients

    idea:most control remotes are slab-shaped and have a very confusing interface. how can a remote be more tactile and intuitive at the same time?

    In America, 46 million people have arthritis (1 in 5 adults)

  • too longtoo sharptoo bulky

    Sketching, foam modeling and illustrator silhouettes were explored in order to define the most comfortable shape for the hand.

    Form Analysis and Prototyping

  • A gentle slope was determined to work best for less stress

    the sensible pad is similar to that of a laptop

    LOPHII BIKE

  • Inspiration came from bridges, silk thread furniture and a fish tail.

    What if the geometry of the bike frame was shifted to allow for more space?

  • =LIGHT BULB PACKAGING

    This light bulb packaging finds inspiration from ancient Japanese egg packaging in order to create a new method of protection and aesthetic enhancement

    LIGHTBULB

  • Initial exploration used paper templates to create different shapes to contain the light bulbs

    Japanese Egg packaging was the main inspiration due to its beauty + function.

    BALLOON PERFORMANCE

    Best in SHOW!

    How do you surprise a city with an aerial performance?

  • Oscar Salguero, Zack Saunders, Kala Letts

    Brief: Design a guerrilla performance stage for aerial performersClient: Quixotic Fusion / KEM StudioLocation: Kansas City, MO

    How can we keep the performer in the air while making the experience magical...

    ?

    !!!

    THE PROBLEM

    WHAT ABOUT THE AIR?

    The Air:light, gracefulmore fantastical

    Aerial truss:lots of steel = very heavymagic of flying is lost

  • Can we challenge the performer, the technician and the audience?The idea of a balloon entices the air as the main point of support of the whole structure.All of a sudden the magic and radicalism of Quixotic Fusion finds a new form of expression, one much more otherworldly...

    a helium balloon?!

    a beacon rises into the sky,changing the monotonous skyline and announcing something different, something unknown...

    Balloon + anchor points

    Balloon + mesh

    Balloon + movement

    The tension against the mesh recreates the theatrical effect used by performers
