This year, Canadian University Dubai’s 2021 graduate class of the Department of Interior Design worked with specific focus on the changing world. The group was challenged to complete their project work remotely due to the pandemic situation. They were a resilient group, trying to make sense of the world around them and the situation they were in without losing their positive attitude and passion for design. The result was an array of fascinating projects reimagining design in the current changing world within the context of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The main focus of the graduation projects was on socio-cultural, ethical, health, and sustainable aspects using a human-centric approach which emerged from evidence-based design research. The projects ranged from spaces where we work, live, play, study, and care for our health exploring user experiences, activities, materiality, and technology creating spatial design based on innovative applications.
