Design Integrations – S. Poggenpohl, K. Sato

Design is reaching a transitional moment that requires a critical look at its current and future states. The look that will unfold in these pages is not from the standpoint of design as an object, but from the standpoint of design as process or action—a look from the inside of design by international teachers and practitioners who support a change from craft to discipline. Design’s craft origins cannot support the evolving context of design action needed now. This is not a new or unique call to action (Krippendorff, 1995; Owen, 1998; Buchanan, 2001); nevertheless, it is timely. Transformations from a status quo do not happen suddenly, and do not evolve because one or a few people believe it is necessary, but because the idea of change resonates with many individuals and institutions worldwide, especially those who practice a new version of design and who teach the next generation of designers to build on the past rather than replicate it. Such transformations also respond to cultural change in the broadest sense. In this case, it also depends on design faculty that understands academic structure from a broader perspective and use institutional supports like research offices, peer-reviewed journals, interdisciplinary opportunities, and conferences to their advantage. What unfolds in this book is a fairly specific argument: that design practice and education are changing, particularly in relation to the two themes this book addresses, research and collaboration. If design is to develop as a discipline, it must necessarily develop further based on these themes. "Design Integrations - S. Poggenpohl, K. Sato".
