The result of that “inverse modelling” (i.e. measuring) approach are presented in Sankey diagrams and are used “to identify discrepancies in the predicted versus actual energy balance”.
Concrete, Plastics and steel represent the materials displaying greatest embodied energies, which also indicates the materials we commonly interact with have a significant impact upon their value and place in society.
Analyse the autopsy product discussing sustainability principles relating to your product.
Present the key components in a clear illustrative discussion, including:
Map the source and eventual destinations of each autopsy material as pathways and intersections.
Discuss briefly the origins of the autopsy product within the context of the mapping result.
Postulate on the next generation within the context of the mapping result.
Discuss your group versions highlighting the comparative materials and manufacturing idiosyncracies.
Describe the assembly processes as annotated nodes on the map.
Include discussion about re-assembly and re-use by visualising the end-of life pathways on your map.
Table your findings.
Think of yourself as a consumer versus you as a designer.
Think about where the product was manufactured, the culture and environment the product was designed for and the implied product life cycle pathways of the end user.
Poll ten people on their perspectives on the product. Map their pathways of usage upon your map.
Table your findings
