Reflections from Sarah’s thesis project

November 10, 2023By archmanNews

Sarah Okafor’s thesis project at Assumption University’s School of Architecture and Design has transformed into an inspiring book that is more than just design – it is a journey of life, inspiration, and creativity. The book also outlines and reflects the unique design process practiced in AAU’s Product Design Program that aims to foster an autotelic personality in students thus leading to a discursive design practice that converses with social context and tackles significant problems. The book was produced, published, and distributed by art4d in collaboration with Assumption University’s School of Architecture and Design. It is one of the unique projects commemorating the 25th anniversary of AAU. Dive into a world of storytelling and inspiration as Sarah shares her unique vision.
