Volume 35 of the Student Publication is in development and wants your voice!
Volume 35 seeks to examine how design thinking and methodologies have transformed and evolved—and might continue to do so—based on advances in technology, connectivity, emergent innovation, and global cultures.
Current contributors to the publication explore this theme through various lenses, from learning environments to the form of code. We are excited to have contributions from renowned designers living, teaching and practicing all over the world, including Juhani Pallasmaa, Casey Reas, Eve Edelstein, Nicole Dotin, Fernando Magallanes, Deb Littlejohn, Erin White and Matt Tomasulo.
In some way, each of these people have influenced that way that we think, learn and practice design in the College. Whether through lectures, participation in events and exhibitions, or learning and practicing within these walls, the diversity of voices and processes evident in this group gives a unique and provocative series of perspectives and interpretations on the current and future of design process and practice.
In addition, we, as students of the College, recognize the importance of starting a critical dialogue in response to these provocations and contributions—a dialogue that might exist within this College, the University, nationally and even internationally.
We ask and encourage contributions to our online issue that have relevant, challenging and transformative ways of thinking about what we do and how we do it. How has the role of the designer changed? How do we do things differently today than we did 5, 10, 20 years ago? How does this manifest itself in the projects that we create and the approaches that we take? We are seeking examples of this in the form of essays and project-based case studies.
