To identify and utilize design research methods that enable synthesis and evaluation through understanding people’s experience and redesign the experience. In our case, we are going to focus on the experience of Walker Plaza Studio, which is a Lab for HCI students.

The problem space was generated based on the data we gathered. In face of the time constraint, the scope was narrowed as well. Instead of redesign the whole lab, we were going to redesign one corner of that lab, to make it comfortable, foster creativity & collaboration.
