056245 - DESIGN THEORY AND PRACTICE
056245 - DESIGN THEORY AND PRACTICE
The approach to Design Thinking was described as the ability of designers to face complex problems and reformulate them through the identification of emerging themes. To better understand the main characteristics of this “re-contextualisation process”, the teaching will have a historical position, which describes how design and its methods have changed according to the changes made in social-technical paradigms. Four paradigms will be presented: industrial economy, Economy experience, knowledge economy and transformation economy. Even if the paradigms are immersed in a specific moment in time, they still exist today. For each paradigm there is a series of important questions for design: mass production, user-centred design, product language, involving production, new craftsmanship, social innovation to mention a few. The description of each paradigm is the occasion for delving further into these problems, framing them in the historical perspective.
Risultati di apprendimento attesi
Students: - applying knowledge and understanding: will learn to recognise and understand complex problems and reformulate them through the identification of emerging themes; - making judgements: can operate a reasoned summary of complex themes. When applied to the project, this means developing the ability to integrate cultural, symbolic and expressive factors with those that are functional, technical, constructive, also considering environmental and system factors; - learning skills: will develop their learing skills to continue studying and investigating the themes that interest them autonomously.
The course analyses how design and its practice have changed according to the changes in the socio-technical paradigms. Some scholars describe the design discipline based on four economies from a Western perspective: Industrial, Experience, Knowledge, and Transformation. Each economy results from the combined effect of changing economic, socio-cultural, technological, and environmental realities.
For each economy, a perspective that dominates the design discourse can be identified: Technical, Human, Digital, and Social. Like all perspectives, each clarifies some aspects and stresses some features of the design discipline while making other aspects less clear and other features less relevant. Later perspectives build upon, rather than replace, earlier ones: many of an earlier perspective’s tools and methods do not lose their value as the design discourse moves on to a new perspective. Therefore, multifaceted perspectives on product design today coexist.
Students will become aware of such multifaceted perspectives during the course and learn the (theoretical and practical) implications for their future jobs. The general aim is for our students to:
1.be aligned and know the historical facts that shaped the design discipline
2.critically link them with current design practice
3.envision and understand future societal and technological challenges
Non sono richiesti pre-requisiti per la frequenza dell'insegnamento.
Modalità di valutazione
In order to sustain the final exam, students can choose between two alternative paths:
_path for Attending Students _path for Non-Attending Students
Attending students will be evaluated on the basis of: i) completion of work outside class (tested via on-line/written questionnaires); ii) group activities; iii) seminar presentation.
Non-Attending students will take a final written questionnaire.
