The Four Essential Pillars for Design Excellence

The four essential pillars encompass human-centric design approach and the understanding of full-bodied, three dimensional physical interaction of user, product and environment. The projects generate innovative solutions using research-driven, evidence-based designs which focus on the user experience.

Enhancement of Human Lifestyle

By creating a way for those less fortunate to easily access fresh produce, Grow Share can have a positive impact on many peoples' lives.

Human-Interaction & User-Centric Design

Food Scarcity is a worldwide issue, by creating a system that could work in practically any climate Grow share is a cost-effective solution.

By allowing the users the freedom to choose what to grow and pick, Grow Share can be customized to fit many cultures and cuisines.

Ergonomics & Human Factors Design

Users interact with Grow share in multiple ways.

Grow Share uses an app to allow users to unlock pods or look up information on the produce being grown. Once the pod is unlocked the user can then open the door and pick the produce they want.

Sustainability & Social Responsibility

Grow Share uses hydroponic growing techniques to grow produce more efficiently.

These techniques are far more sustainable than traditional soil farming: hydroponics uses significantly fewer resources, i.e. water, energy, space, and time.

Urban Fresh Produce Accessibility

Project Summary

Many people have a difficult time finding fresh affordable produce as researched by The Food Trust. An area with a large population facing this shortage is referred to as a food desert. Food deserts are a modern issue. Oftentimes there is an abundance of fast-food restaurants, which is an unhealthy option that many people resort to because they have no other alternative. According to The Food Trust, food deserts primarily impacted low-income or minority groups. This population is already at a disadvantage, but when adding the inability to source healthy food they are experiencing more shortcomings. This group of people are driven to live a generally unhealthy life which reduces lifespan as well as the quality of life. The purpose of this topic is to investigate the efficiency of systems that can be set up and use less space, water, and time to generate fresh produce for the target audience. Studies will examine growing techniques that can successfully cultivate produce with seasonal changes, optimizing growth and growing year-round.
