The Master Roundtable brought together masters from Project Twelve to share their design process and reflection on their zodiac works. The Master Roundtable series have run from March to April in parallel to designer-mentees’ design process, providing inspiration for their new interpretation of the past zodiac works.
Designer-mentees presented their research findings and preliminary design concept. Master-mentors and advisors offered constructive feedback for the design development, while designer-mentees also got a chance to learn from their peer designers’ expertise. The collaborative and collective design process took off from these sharing sessions and continued throughout April.
Designer-mentees gathered to share their final design concepts in the interactive online-offline hybrid review sessions with prototype models and material testing mock-ups. In-depth dialogues among the designer-mentees and master-mentors, advisors and guest critics provided valuable support for the mentees to refine the design proposals and plan for future fabrication and production.
