Unpleasant Design Workshop: We Will Make You Do It
At the Unpleasant Design workshop, participants will use persuasive and coercive design techniques to invent designs that target specific social strata or behaviors in public space. The workshop will include an Unpleasant City Tour as a way to identify existing designs and possible new targets. We will brainstorm about possible unpleasant designs specific to the city of Calgary. Finally, we will craft Unpleasant Design prototypes that the participants can consider implementing in public spaces of the future. Participants must be over the age of 16. All materials will be provided.
