  1. 1. Surface patterns, spatiality and pattern relations in textile design

    University dissertation from Borås : Högskolan i Borås

    Author : Tonje Kristensen Johnstone; Högskolan i Borås.; [2017]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Surface patterns; textile design; spatiality; spatial definers; design variables; pattern relations; conceptual spatial determinations; Textiles and Fashion Design ; Textil och mode konstnärlig ;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis focuses on surface patterns, spatiality, and pattern relations in textile design, and aims to explore surface patterns as spatial definers and what they mean in the context of surface patterns. A secondary focus relates to applying conceptual spatial determinations as alternative design variables in design processes, and exploring how these could be used to define and analyse pattern relations.

  2. 2. Critical indirectness as a design approach in participatory practice: Spatialities of multivocal estrangement in three engagements with public cultural institutions around participatory projects in Gothenburg

    University dissertation from Borås : Högskolan i Borås

    Author : Jonathan Geib; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; indirectness; multivocal design approach; design; participation; multivocality; transdisciplinary architectural research; critical spatial practice; spatiality; estrangement; design approach;

    Abstract : Contributing across the domains of open transdisciplinary inquiry and transdisciplinary- and practice-oriented architectural and urbanism research engaging critically with participation in urban contexts, this research proposes critical indirectness as a multivocal design approach in participatory practice, developed through conceptual-analytical inquiry into three cases involving engagements between external art and design practitioners and public cultural institutions around participatory projects in Gothenburg. It joins with calls for art and design practitioners' greater engagement with public sector institutions as way of working towards a more durable and wider impact, with calls to model a more de-centered 'urban-combinatory' practice on the plurality, hybridity, discontinuities, and contingencies of the contemporary city, and with calls for more multiple, contradictory approaches.

    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; waste-resource cycles; dérive; designerly thinking; beyond sustainability; place-making; spatial design; nonmodern narratives; collective public life; regenerative design; schema;

    Abstract : Increased population and movement in the age of unsettlement affects local cultural institutions, ecological constitutions and the ontological sense of belonging. These conditions are arguably influenced by the mounting waste produced by the throw-away culture of the age of the ephemeral. READ MORE

  4. 4. Let's Eat Together: Methods and Tools for Inclusive City Design Practice

    Abstract : This thesis studies how the practice of eating together impacts on liveable city making. In this thesis, the practice of eating together is called commensality, which is a collective action that creates shared environments. Through time these environments are turned into recognized meeting places where locals gather. READ MORE
