  1. 1. The science of imagining solutions design becoming conscious of itself through design

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University, Umeå Institute of Design

    Author : Søren Rosenbak; Johan Redström; Carl DiSalvo; Andrew Morrisson; [2018]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; design; pataphysics; possibility; imaginaries; imagination; the artificial; critical practice; critical design; speculative design; design fiction; participatory design; smart cities; lies; metadata; surveillance; failures; research through design; constructive design research; practice-based design research; programmatic research; epiphenomenology; quantum poetics; design; design; industridesign; industrial design;

    Abstract : This dissertation addresses a paradox in design: we currently live in a day and age that is fundamentally conditioned by artifice on all scales, and principled by a deep sense of contingency and possibility. In this world, anything could always be something else. READ MORE

  2. 2. Meaning in the Making: Introducing a Hermeneutic Perspective on the Contribution of Design Practice to Innovation

    University dissertation from Göteborg : ArtMonitor

    Author : Marcus Jahnke; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2013]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; design; innovation; design management; hermeneutics; meaning- making; design thinking; design practice;

    Abstract : In recent years interest has grown in how design can contribute to innovation in business and society, such as through the management concept of design thinking. However, up-close studies on design’s contribution to innovation are still scarce. READ MORE

  3. 3. Transtructures prototyping transitional practices for the design of postindustrial infrastructures

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Lorenzo Davoli; Johan Redström; Cameron Tonkinwise; [2016]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Infrastructures; transition design; postindustrial design; system design; drones; participation; design practices; automation; hacking; logistic; telecommunications; hållbar utveckling; sustainable development; design; design;

    Abstract : This dissertation is about 'transtructures', a term coined to describe new kinds of infrastructures that are more attentive and responsive to the needs of contemporary society, its emerging economies and technological capabilities. The purpose of this inquiry is to begin to explore the character and possibilities of a design practice that could guide responsibly and ethically the transition of existing industrial infrastructures towards these new configurations: what processes it could follow, and what materials it could include.

  4. 4. Towards automated conceptual design space exploration

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Jakob Müller; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Engineering Design; Model Abstraction; Function Modelling; Knowledge Based Engineering; Model Based Design; Function-Means Modelling; Geometry Modelling; Design Space Exploration; Product Development; Systems Engineering; Design Automation; Aerospace;

    Abstract : In mature and safety-concerned industries, such as the aerospace industry, product development is often incremental and design solutions are limited to improvements of an existing design. Radical changes to the known product architecture are avoided, for reasons of reliability, lack of technology or lack of design space exploration (DSE) methods. READ MORE
