It was important that the MSU Denver design team fully immerse themselves in the community of La Piedra. Staying at La Piedra for consecutive days allowed the design team to analyze investigative research processes in the community. Designers worked side-by-side with the community to implement immersive research techniques, such as focus groups, prototyping and “fly on the wall” scenarios. Designers spent the first week focusing on research methods before design production was employed.
