Design Science – and what makes it tick!
The topics of a young discipline.
As a young discipline, design studies/science is currently establishing itself within the worldwide community of academia. The participants of Circle 00002 discussed various positions from the fields of design research, design theory as well as from the funding institutions’ perspective. They also asked for the relevance of academic research practices for everyday creative processes and the understanding of today’s product and consumer culture.
