Design Journey - Volume 1: Introducing to Design Knowledge Transfer
 
Anno: 2019
Autori: Daniele Busciantella Ricci, Emiliano Carbone, Michela Ventin
Editore: Mimesis International | Lingua: Inglese
 

This book is one in a series, looking at the research activities of the Design Research Lab (DRLab) at the University of Trento. The first volume of the series aims to disseminate the first of three research steps of the DRLab to all the practitioners, researchers and students differently engaged in the complexity of design knowledge. Since 2017 DRLab is the first research centre in Trentino engaged in Design Research with the aim to transfer Design Knowledge to the educational, production, and public policy systems in Trentino. The Volume 1 of the series reports how DRLab adopted Design Research knowledge to build a practice-based Dissemination Framework with the aim to disseminate the design culture.

How disseminating Design Knowledge where design-led approaches are not systematically applied? How transferring Design Knowledge to non-experts with inclusive approaches? How transferring collaborative design principles? How setting the actions to increase the interests in design culture? These are some of the questions the authors try to answer in this book underlining the setting-up action-based research phase. Finally, theoretical as well as practical aspects were discussed with the aim to highlight implication both for the involved actors at local scale and for a wide perspective in the Design Research discourse.

 

Design (&) Activism: Perspectives on Design as Activism and Activism as Design
Anno: 2019
Autori: Tom Bieling (curatore)
Editore: Mimesis International | Lingua: Inglese
 

This is a book about how the worlds of design and activism (could) inspire each other. The main goal is to encourage a continuous debate and investigation of research related to design (in theory and practice) and its position within social, activist movements. What is the benefit of using design in activism? What is design’s role in the course of social movements? What role can and does activism play in design? What are the contemporary expressions of design activism? Who can be a design-activist? And is there an emergent typology of design activism? In this book we shall elaborate these questions through analyzing the use of design e.g. for the communication, information, problematization, visualization, interaction, gamification or management in activist contexts and purposes. We will have a closer look at the approaches, methods, tactics and strategies used in this field. This will help us to better understand the rituals, structures and meanings of design (&) activism in history and the present. And it shall help us to derive arguments and examples for the transformative potential of future design activism.
