Design science – and what makes it tick! (Panel Discussion)

As a young discipline, design studies/science is currently establishing itself within the worldwide community of academia. A couple of months ago, the Institute of Design Research Vienna conducted a panel discussion at Designforum Vienna (MQ/Museumsquartier). The participants 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.

We would have shared this video with you anyway, but we enjoy sharing even more, since Tom Bieling’s Research projects were also described in this discussion!

Language in the discussion/video: German.

Panel members:

Gesche Joost
Alexander Damianisch
Thomas Geisler
Harald Gründl
