Designing together for the 21st Century

Kurshumli An, Old Bazaar, Skopje, Macedonia 4. October 2013

What happens when designers shift their focus from satisfying consumer desires, to facilitating new social possibilities? Anette was invited by press to exit project space to give a talk at Skopje Design Week (1-6 oct. 2013). The talk took a closer look at two frameworks that champion transformative approaches to design: Metadesign – the design of design, and Socially Responsive Design – that shifts from designing for people to designing with people. Through the manifesto: Designing together for the 21st Century  we explored some projects and practices that are responding to the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. The presentation was supported by Norsk Form and Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
