'How has Technology and the Internet changed our relationship with shopping and the shopping environment?' was the title of the Dissertation I wrote during my Third Year at University. We were allowed to write about absolutely anything we wanted but it was suggested we focus it on a subject linking to our Final Major Projects. I wanted to base my FMP on the design of a futuristic Retail store and that is where I focused my Dissertation research. The images I have included in this post are the pages from the final dissertation that I submitted.
I was really happy with the outcome of my Dissertation, I learnt a huge amount from all of my research and it really became the core influence on my FMP. If I were to develop it further in the future I would have liked to research into other aspects of retail design in more depth - but that would have required a larger word count allowance.
