Re-design Design Education Conference Wuxi China
The Re-design Design Education conference was held to reflect issues in design education as well as practice based on the changing landscape of design research with e.g. Richard Buchanan, Richard Boland, Jurgen Faust, Kun-pyo Lee, Ezio Manzini, Darrel Rhea.
The conference particularly explored philosophical concepts shared by various subject matters of design and common patterns to designing within different business, social and cultural contexts. For this reason dozens of international academic leaders, experts and industrial pioneers in design, management and economics have come to Wuxi to share research findings and case studies in order to contribute to the discussion about design and design thinking. I would like to highlight the contributions of some academics and experts in their field in some further posts, e.g. Richard Buchanan, Richard Boland, Jurgen Faust, Kun-pyo Lee, Ezio Manzini, Sabine Junginger, Darrel Rhea and Craig M. Vogel.
With some of them I had the pleasure to discuss matters in a very personal discussion group in the Designing Business Matters Conference 2014, a sub-conference of the “Re-design Design Education” conference, which specifically has been held to develop a discourse around designing in the business context, to elaborate on designing for ethics in finance and responsible business, and to consider design for sustainable economies.
