Welche Rolle spielt Design in gesellschaftlichen Transformationsprozessen? Können Zukünfte und soziale Wirklichkeiten nachhaltig gestaltet werden - oder handelt es sich bei den Wirkungen gestalterischer Eingriffe um mehr oder weniger zufällige Reaktionen eigensinnig evolvierender sozialer Systeme auf gut gemeinte Interventionen?

The recent cross-breeding between design and social innovation sparks some interesting debates about the adequacy and real benefit of design for the search of answers to our political and social problems. What is so social about design in the first place ? Even if we do understand design as a set of practises that impact on the artificial environme...
Long perceived in the classical literature as focused on technical aspects, project management is re-viewed in an empirical investigation that underscores the place of value judgment. Adopting a grounded theoretical research strategy and drawing on Chaim Perelman's rhetoric and Schön's pragmatist view of design activities for the theoretical framew...
This article examines project management through the lens of practice. Drawing on the literature, we develop a typological model that brings together four distinct theoretical types of project management practice. Adopting a deliberately critical perspective, we show that the first three types propose a weak conception of the logical relationship b...

Sur le théme illustré dans le titre, nous avons effectué à l’automne 1981 à l’École de design industriel de I’Université de Montréal un exercice pédagogique dont nous proposons ici les résultats. L’expérimentation a porté sur des applications concrètes de la théorie des groupes d’isométrie dans le plan: groupes ponctuels et linèaires dans ce premie...
