Research symposium-Designing Critical Messages

MONDAY 24 JUNE 2013 —10.30AM
PLYMOUTH UNIVERSITY
Lec­ture Theatre 1
Roland Lev­in­sky
Drakes Cir­cus Plymouth

This is a unique free event.
A day of dis­cus­sion about pro­act­ive, react­ive, reflect­ive design meth­ods and practices.

Dif­fer­ent types of research are fun­da­mental to design.
New forms of com­mon empathy help us cre­ate a plat­form to ques­tion and act on the chal­lenges we face in the future. When deployed wisely design and archi­tec­ture can bring us pleas­ure, choice, strength, decency and much more, but if abused, the out­come can be waste­ful, con­fus­ing, humi­li­at­ing and dangerous.

None of us can avoid being affected by design, whether or not we wish to. It is so ubi­quit­ous that it determ­ines how we feel and what we do, often without our noticing.

Our world is chan­ging and how we edu­cate for that world is chan­ging too, this day event will weave some threads of how we might tackle, under­stand and reflect on these changes.
