Brighton: Grand Parade and Dome
Over the past 50 years design research has established a firm basis for our understanding of design. For DRS2016 we consider how design research can help us address the problems we face now and the challenges that lie ahead.
We ask three questions:
How can design research help frame and address the societal problems that face us?
How can design research be a creative and active force for rethinking ideas about Design?
How can design research shape our lives in more responsible, meaningful, and open ways?
DRS2016 is hosted by the University of Brighton in the UK, in association with the Royal College of Art and Imperial College, London (where the very first meeting of the Design Research Society was held in 1966).
The conference week will give attendees the chance to experience the energy and creativity of the dynamic city of Brighton.
