88951 Future Design Strategies





By its very nature, design is an activity concerned with the future. In this time of rapid transformation, with all its accompanying complexity, threats and opportunities, being aware of how change might impact on design becomes critical. This subject addresses those areas identified as likely to impact most on the design professions over the next decade. They include cultural change, globalisation, sustainability and technology advances. Students are supported in researching developments in these and other change making themes. Leading designers, design academics and futurologists join UTS staff in mapping possible future strategies for designers.
