Design Requirements for Our Project

Point of View Statement

Enter a refined POV statement that succinctly describes the essential user needs that you're designing a solution to provide. This will likely be based on your earlier POV statements, but may have evolved and updated based on your continued exploration and refining of your understanding of the problems throughout the Ideating phase of the design thinking process.

[Student Sam] needs [a sustainable and comfortable study area] because [he finds it difficult to focus in existing study areas that are noisy, dark, and crowded but he doesn't like working in his dorm because it is small and he can't connect with others. In addition, he is looking for a place that is sustainable and reuses materials.]
