Napper win a competition in collaboration with a multi-disciplinary team
20 June 2018
The competition was held at the University of Reading and Loughborough as part of an AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council) funded project “Information Design and Architecture in Persuasive Pharmacy Space: combating AMR (IDAPPS) “. The project addresses the challenges of Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR) in Pharmacy space and it is developed collaboration with: Zafer Tandogdou a worldwide clinician expert in AMR, Evgenios Kakariadis a mathematician who has research experience in developing analytical methods and Tryfon Tzanetis a computer scientist.
The design concept employs two characters, the “good” bug and the “super” bug, that create informative narratives within the pharmacy space. These characters were inspired from the biological understanding of bacteria, their interaction with space and humans, and the evolution of drug resistant bacteria.
The judges’ commented that:
“Space is used in interesting and dynamic ways…There is an excellent mix of interventions that will appeal to different kinds of user….. This proposal is full of good and innovative ideas, for example, the idea to map and compare antibiotic usage in Woodley with that in the rest of the country.”
