Te Herenga Waka – Victoria University of Wellington 2021 Graduation Exhibition

2 months ago by

EOYE 2021 is the annual end of year exhibition of Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington showcasing an impressive range of talent by third-year students from the Te Wāhanga Waihanga-Hoahoa—Wellington Faculty of Architecture and Design Innovation. These are the creative thinkers, makers, minds, designers and architects of the future—soon to be shaping our Aotearoa, and the world.

To help keep the exhibition visitors, our students and staff safe, the on-campus exhibition is postponed from 2021 to 2022. The design awards will be delivered online in December 2021. An online exhibition celebrating the students’ work will open also later in 2022.

Please follow the website for updates on the dates.

 

 

 

Issy Carter – Complete Rubbish

Bachelor of Design Innovation in Interaction Design. IXXN390 Interaction Design Capstone / Whakatinana ā-Wheako Hoahoa ā-Pāhekoheko.

You know how New Zealanders find it confusing to know which bins their rubbish goes into. There’s 67 different councils with different recycling and rubbish rules. At Complete Rubbish, we take the hassle of googling or asking a flat mate of what rubbish goes where, through a single barcode scan or search all on a app. Our recycling instructions comply with your council region via location services so you know your rubbish information is accurate.

This design intervention focuses on the topic of food waste in NZ and how we can reduce this problem by learning how to cook all parts of our vegetable. Led by Kaupapa Māori value-based principles, it encourages different ways for whanau to cook food and look at different ways to cook food and not waste kai. https://foodwastedesignintervention.squarespace.com

How can we recreate travel in a Covid world where we can’t leave and tourists can’t get in. Computer generated 3D printed ECO-cubes capture local habitats on the day that you visit them – rain or shine, in person or online. Tiny but tangible worlds in a microcosm, reconnecting us or delighting others from a distance, with our unique environment.
