The designers devoted the first week to understand the local know-how, the production method, sketches, and research. The last week was dedicated to make quick and effective choices and focusing on 2 to 3 specific projects. All the projects have been reported in a large document : dimensioned plans, 3D images, inspirations, steps, illustrations, sketches, accessible for producing companies.
Each designer engaged in a pitch exercise; presentation of their project with the documents they produced. Designers, TCDC, companies and all the partners involved in the project were attending. This exercise was extremely useful. It created a real team cohesion and adherence to the global project for the designers. It was also an important step in the validation of projects' feasibility for companies.
