Guest lecture: Harold Nelson
Becoming Designers in the Age of Design
Our understanding of design and what it means to be designers in the emerging ‘Age of Design” will change. Or at the very least, challenge our habits of thinking and practice that are the norm in design fields today. People everywhere are realizing that design is indeed a big deal with consequences that go far beyond what is now appreciated as ‘design thinking’. This presentation will explore some of the concepts and consequences of being a designer in the Anthropocene Epoch. The presentation will draw material from the 2nd edition of The Design Way by Nelson and Stolterman due from MIT Press in July.
Dr. Nelson received his Ph.D. in Social Systems Design, graduating with distinction, from the University of California at Berkeley. He received his Master of Architecture degree from U.C. Berkeley, and a Bachelor of Architecture from Montana State University. Dr. Nelson studied architecture at the Technical University in Helsinki, Finland where in addition he studied ceramic design at the Athenaeum Fine Arts Academy.
