How is context for design established in a world that can changed overnight? 

Third-year OCAD U Industrial Design students explore the intricacies of designing for health in a pandemic, delving into the mental and physical human needs of a socially-distanced world.

Micro/Macro OCADU x Design TO Design Exhibition

In participation of the course Design for Health at OCAD University, Toronto, Canada, students developed self-directed term projects examining the role design plays in defining the nuanced meaning of health in a global pandemic, measuring impact on an individual to global scale. 

The projects address the concepts of flexibility, agility, inclusivity, and intersectionality, designing for an ever-changing "new normal."
