Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This collaborative research project with Imagination, Lancaster University, UK, Charles Sturt University, Australia, and the Design Museum, London, UK has the following objectives:
* To develop an international perspective on the state of the contemporary Design School.
* To explore whether the Design School of the future needs to be more "undisciplined" (not interdisciplinary) in its approach to increasingly complex global crises.
* To examine the conditions that are impacting on the Design School in ways that the history of the discipline has not traced.
* To review the effects of the shift from disciplinary autonomy to interdisciplinarity.
* To appraise the challenges for the future Design School and the practice of design from globalised information flows and the spectacle of image making.
