Two College of Design programs were highlighted in the news this week. KMSP-TV visited the School of Architecture Monday morning to meet with the students in a cabin design class taught by Professor in Practice Dale Mulfinger (Architecture). Mulfinger, who founded SALA Architects, has written a number of books about cabins, including Cabinology: A Handbook to Your Private Hideaway.
Professor Lucy Dunne (Apparel Design) was interviewed by KSTP-TV about her prototype for a fire fighting glove that allows the user to see and feel a room without actually looking at it or touching it. Dunne is working on the project with MFA graphic design student Anthony Carton, who was awarded "Most Innovative Concept" for his context-aware signal glove during the International Symposium on Wearable Computers in 2012.
The firefighting glove was also a featured story on the U of M homepage.
