This week we incorporated nature into our design. We began by meeting at the Botanic Garden and collaborated in our learning communities to understand how nature and design truly go hand in hand. Although it was extremely hot, it was a really pretty place and great learning experience to be able to come up with new ideas from our team members. My favorite part of the Botanic Garden was the shaded area with rocks to sit on because it was a great area to discuss the questions with our learning community as well as get to sit and not be in the sun.
Next we had the design slam, although I was sick and unable to be there, my team members sent me notes and told me how we incorporated the ideas we learned from the Botanic Garden into more sustainable design pieces and concepts.
