The value of design research
The 11th International European Academy of Design (EAD) Conference wad held in Paris last week. 3 days of intense reflexion and sharing about the large topic of ‘The value of design research’.
I will not comment here a specific intervention (whereas a few impressed me and a few others angered me :-), but try to retrieve a global perception and synthesize the discourses heard. Which is not easy considering the variety of designers’ and researchers’ stances !
So, where does the value of design research lie ? Maybe in the lines of this sketch. Feel free to comment so we can improve it together.
Thanks to all attendees, speakers, track convenors, and committee for this exciting conference.
Full papers should be online soon – to be continued !
