Joseph Chang | 2017 Fellow
Joseph Chang enjoys designing with his hands. He grew up in the Bay Area, CA, where much of his time was spent building in his high school’s fabrication shop and father’s garage. During his two years in the architecture program at the Illinois Institute of Technology, he found a passion for wood working and furniture design. In 2013, he transferred to the USC School of Architecture in pursuit of sharpening his design skills. Joseph is currently a fourth year student and is interested in investigating furniture design within tiny homes.
For his MADWORKSHOP fellowship, he will be prototyping a backpacking stretcher for emergency situations. The apparatus can be operated by a single person to carry heavy loads such as an injured person or loose items over rough terrain.
