Design as Future-Making Paperback / softback

Edited by Susan Yelavich, Barbara Adams

Description

Design as Future-Making brings together leading international designers, scholars, and critics to address ways in which design is shaping the future.

The contributors share an understanding of design as a practice that, with its focus on innovation and newness, is a natural ally of futurity.

Ultimately, the choices made by designers are understood here as choices about the kind of world we want to live in.

Design as Future-Making locates design in a space of creative and critical reflection, examining the expanding nature of practice in fields such as biomedicine, sustainability, digital crafting, fashion, architecture, urbanism, and design activism.

The authors contextualize design and its affects within issues of social justice, environmental health, political agency, education, and the right to pleasure and play.

Collectively, they make the case that, as an integrated mode of thought and action, design is intrinsically social and deeply political.
