The aim for this Special Issue (SI) of Design Issues is to bring together contemporary perspectives on ‘research through design’ as borne out through practice-based forms of inquiry. This collection will be produced in association with the Research Through Design (RTD) 2015 conference held in Cambridge 25th – 27th March 2015.
By bringing together a set of perspectives on RTD 2015, the SI hopes to offer experiential insight from those who attended and exhibited, about what it means to both practice and disseminate ‘research through design’ (RtD) and what the opportunities and challenges are for this burgeoning community. By doing so the collection aims to contribute to a growing academic discourse about practicing design as a knowledge generating activity.
See the full Call for further information about the SI themes and making a submission.
