Design Research

The New Design : Doing without Design is not an option; the only question is whether design is done well or badly. In a world of global complexity design thinking is essential. The task today is to bring together disciplines of science, the humanities and the arts to create radically interdisciplinary ways of knowing and making. If design practices are to meet the challenges of our increasingly dangerous times then they must: make connections, make sense and make changes.

One way or another we are going to change the world. We are an International Design School committed to addressing global challenges.
