Description

How are contemporary designers and design theorists envisaging modes of design that are critical, future directed and challenge the status quo? In this round table panel, we explore and discuss the different ways in which forms of critical design are now being conceptualized and enacted from "speculative design" and transitional design to "discursive design" and beyond. Does the turn to critical design constitute a new kind of political and social engagement? Does it imply the need for new modes of critical design thinking beyond design thinking? Does it imply new modes of design pedagogy?

Critical Design and Critical Futures
