NYU’s studio group Design for America set out for a 10 day trip to Nepal in order to test ideas of social-improvement that have been cultivated by human-centered design. This trip could serve as a measure for the DFA’s potential for future change.
Design for America is a nationwide network of multidisciplinary student teams who use human-centered design to develop innovative solutions for local and social impact. At NYU, DFA is a student-run group advised by Tandon Engineering Professor of Management Anne-Laure Fayard.
