Critical discourse on design.

designTHUNK provides a venue for critical discourse on design and the design process. The presentations are intentionally split into two components, finished work and works in progress.  The former gives the presenter the opportunity to show off a recently completed project while the latter offers the opportunity to discuss a project not yet realized. This split allows for discourse and critique on the successfulness of finished work as well as the opportunity to shape future work.
