Om emnet

Open for designers, architects, landscape architects and urbanists.

The course deals with how to understand the role of the designer as an agent of change and

 design practice in terms of critical theory development and socio-cultural issues today. The course will be taught as a mix of lectures, seminars and assignments, as well as student-led engagements and visiting design studios and practitioners with a conceptual, research-led approach to the field of design.

The direction of the course will spring from a selection of texts that present new theoretical perspectives on the current state, scope and relevance of design. The course can prepare for or be combined with the PhD programme, or a role in research-led creative practice.
