Project 3: Prototyping

What is a good prototype? A bad prototype? P3 pushes on this question as you iterate across a series of prototypes.

Schedule and Feedback

As with P2, your team can work on P3 at its own pace until the deadline on February 13. As you proceed through the milestones, submit them to Canvas before class and by bringing printouts to class to show in studio.

Project Examples By Peers

We particularly liked this submission from the Social Decision Making studio. (Though we did not expect you to submit 80 pages…)

Project Parts

Below is our recommended timeline for Project 3. Keep in mind that it may take several iterations of feedback on submissions before you and your team are ready to declare a milestone complete.

Part I

Feb. 3 (week 4)

Part II

Feb. 10 (week 5)

Part III

Feb. 13 (week 6). Final submission, hard deadline.

Grading rubric

Each intermediate milestone is worth five points. You will receive five points for completing the assignment satisfactorily, submitting it, and your whole team bringing your sketches to studio for feedback. Part III, the final submission, will be the only part of the assignment where we evaluate your work and assign points. It is worth 15 points.
