Graduate students showcase design ideas for a sustainable future

Thursday, 31 May, 2007

Among the exciting line up of graduate student work to be exhibited at the Society for Responsible Design ChangeX 2007 exhibition, will be a number of eco-friendly designs including an environmentally sound shower system for the homeless, a system for upgrading storm water for local use and a combined system for domestic grey water recycling that also monitors water saving.

The exhibition will showcase solar powered portable lithium batteries able to provide energy for water condensation, GPS or mobile phones and even the battery of a vehicle, interior design and products that significantly reduce the ecological footprint, and the long life of LED lighting.

"The graduate projects selected for show have been based on inspiring and challenging concepts underpinned by sustainable thinking. They highlight how design thinking can significantly contribute to more sustainable practice across many disciplines through ideas in architecture, water efficiency, fashion, communications, interiors, shopping and landscapes," says convenor of SRD, Greg Campbell.

"This is very exciting and insightful exhibition that confirms the importance of higher education as an integral element to enabling change. It also provides many opportunities to reflect upon how much responsible design contributes towards tangible solutions globally," he says.
