Human by Design: Center for Design Launch
January 28 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Join the College of Arts, Media, and Design community for the official launch event of the Center for Design. Human by Design is both an overview of the nature, structure, and initiatives of the Center for Design (CfD) and a showcase of the exemplary interdisciplinary design-oriented research activities it incubates, with the Co-Lab for Data Impact initiative – bringing together Design and Journalism – being one of the most advanced.
Design is a bridge and interface between the opportunities that arise from scientific and technological advancements, and human needs and aims. By foreseeing and shaping technologies into products, services, and systems, design enables meaningful experiences and new behaviors. When design is everywhere, and everyone designs, capturing, understanding, and cultivating its fluid nature becomes essential, to make it stronger and let it play the role of catalyst and facilitator across disciplines.
Come to hear about and discuss the future of design as an ‘interdisciplinary and integrative discipline,’ and the mission of the CfD as a space for these new interdisciplinary exchanges. We encourage you to spread the word by sharing this event with your peers and ask that all guests please RSVP.
