Imagined Worlds: Critical Design

Modernism has failed, design cannot solve all the world’s problems and now there can be alternatives.

Conventional Design: Affirmative, Problem Solving, Design as process, provides answers, in the service of industry, for how the world is, science fiction, futures,

Three Things in Common:

  1. All remove the constraints from the commercial sector that define normative design processes;
  2. Use models and prototypes at the heart of the enquiry;
  3. Use fiction t present alternative products, systems or worlds
