Programs of General Three-Dimensional Design can encompass many of the 3D design fields described here – architectural design, environmental design, fashion design, industrial design, and interior design – and either offer students the opportunity to specialize in one of these areas or take a more survey approach. Like study in any design area, students’ design education is complemented and augmented with courses in culture, theory, and history.

To test and practice this kind of procedure, they needed physical simulations. That’s where OCAD University sculptor and researcher Francis LeBouthillier came in.
