Student design projects that address the context of cultural heritage through materiality and narrative are more necessary in our time than previously in order to develop future design professionals who can design thoughtfully and with relevance. In an age of exposure to countless images stored in an ethereal, global, and technical landscape in the form of digital media, it is vital for students to engage narrative and materiality through direct sensory experience. This paper examines the reactions of students to two design projects and a constructed example that actively engage the communication and expression of cultural heritage through narrative means as a proposal for a pedagogical and methodological approach to design and analysis.
