A design-theoretical publication.

What is the Topic?

This thesis observes the role of designers in societal transformation processes. By comparing the curricula of two design schools who stand up for for a changed role model in their orientation, considerations for a sustainable educational profile are developed.

Why does it look like this?

The medium book and the scientific way of writing enables for a deep debate with the complex theme. Moreover this consciously selected written form mirrors the insights of the thesis in the case that designers should learn to communicate in a scientific manner to support a interdisciplinary exchange and understanding.

What is special?

The design education becomes the designing object.

What is new?

It is not a design project in the conventional way in my field of study.
