One goal of the GDS program is to support the emergence of a network of scholars engaged with exploring the field of Gendered Design (GD) and experimenting with more aware design practices. The GDS research teams are for sure members of this potential future and work-in-progress network, along with the GDS core team and experts (gender, regional, a...
Article
This paper is a contribution to the discussion on the ethical and political limitations of institutionalised, dominant design practices and on the need to rethink the ways in which they operate. It points out that institutionalised design processes act as a dispositive of power that not only capture and colonise forms of life, but that also shape t...

Participatory Design (PD) grew out of linkages between technology designers and worker movements in the 1970s. Now, as participation has emerged as an increasingly popular and contested idea in design fields and education, conversations about what we mean by “participation,” who gets to participate and to what ends, and how we imagine the kinds of...
Conference Paper
Neste trabalho, refletimos sobre como se pode ensinar o Design como forma de estar e participar no mundo. Identificamos no conceito de colaboração, uma quebra necessária ao modo dominante ensinado globalmente em escolas de design, caracterizado pelo ethos individualista da sociedade capitalista. Contudo, diversos pesquisadores da área apontam a nec...

O presente artigo propõe uma releitura da pratica de design para inovação social por uma perspectiva ecossistemica que encontra suas...
Chapter
The architectural historian and critic Kenneth Frampton ‘never recovered’ from the force of Hannah Arendt’s teaching at The New School in New York. The philosopher Richard J. Bernstein considers her the most perceptive political theorist and observer of ‘dark times’ (a concept which, drawing from Brecht, she made her own). Building on the revival o...
Chapter
Design contribution towards more sustainable and plural futures could be framed as a design practice directed at fostering, enabling and supporting the collective discussion and re-imagination of our societies, which means of their structures and dynamics. A closer observation and reflection on current design efforts and approaches aimed at contrib...
Article
This paper reflects on the co-design approach for catalysing and fostering participatory democracy and the redistribution of power exercise within the urban space, particularly when it is practiced in conflict-affected urban areas. Upon applying co-design dynamics, designers give rise to new possibilities for power exercise whose existence they may...

Neste artigo, refletimos sobre possibilidades e formas alternativas para processos de produção de conhecimento acadêmico que sejam colaborativos e participativos, bem como sobre suas potencialidades. Em particular, analisamos o conceito de polylogue e como o usamos para experimentar um formato para a produção coletiva de conhecimento, ao atuar como...

In this article, we reflect on the possibilities and ways of creating alternative formats for both collaborative and participatory academic knowledge production processes, and on their potentialities. In particular, we look into the concept of polylogue, and how we used it to experiment with a format for collective knowledge production, as guest ed...

With this special edition of the Strategic Design Re-search Journal (SDRJ) we want to contribute to the emerg-ing debate on design’s role in the creation of the very worlds within which we live, the conditions for plural possibilities of being, and in critically self reflecting on the conditions, infrastructures, networks and scaffolds that world-m...

Citizen participation is a valuable resource in redefining and democratizing urban space. In urban regeneration projects, it fosters engagement by the community and integration among different forms of city urbanization, such as formal and informal areas, i.e. slums. Despite the potentialities of participatory processes, usually the plurality of ac...

O livro Ecovisões projetuais encontra suas origens no âmbito do 5° Simpósio Brasileiro de Design Sustentável (SBDS), que aconteceu em 2015 no Rio de Janeiro. Desde a sua concepção, a quinta edição do Simpósio foi pensada como um lugar de experimentação de novas dinâmicas de troca e discussão cientifica entre pesquisadores em design engajados com a...

In this paper, we describe our work on producing physical tools for people doing collaborative text interpretation of conversational texts. Recognizing that although there is a linearity to conversation, we nonetheless believe that in many cases the content might better be represented as a physical, spatial object, where parts of the discussion can...

Resumo A inovação social depende de um processo de mudança sistêmica. Para obtê-la, é necessário desafiar nossos modos insustentáveis de vida e, sobretudo, elaborar processos de aprendizagem social que ativem a capacidade imanente nos ecossistemas criativos de desenvolver soluções inovadoras que transformem a sociedade em prol do bem-estar coletivo...
Article
Full-text available
Partnerships with local actors are quite common in social design projects developed in unknown contexts. Several design researchers describe them as positive and supportive elements for project development. However, setting up a partnership may bring several unexpected challenges to the designer’s agency and have strong implications on the design p...
Article
Social design represents a growing interest among the design community. Many academic and educational experiences confirm that it is possible and promising. Senior, junior and future designers are urged to face social issues, and to foster social change and innovate. Far from institutional environments, however, professionals' action can be rather...

Social innovation depends on a process of systemic change. In order to achieve it, unsustainable ways of life have to be challenged, and social learning processes promoted. The latter must be able to catalyze creative ecosystems’ immanent capacity of developing innovative solutions able to transform society towards collective wellbeing. A creative...

Conference Paper
This paper explores the influence of local forces on Participatory Design processes aiming at promoting access and inclusion, carried out in marginalized conflict areas. Social contexts are the synthesis of the forces exerted by local actors which become more and more influent on contextual dynamics in situations of local instability and struggles....

o objetivo geral desse estudo é , por meio do desenvolvimento de um protótipo de gerenciamento do conhecimento projetual, refletir sobre a maneira design de projetar. Pretende-se com isto, criar mecanismos que facilitem a comunicação dos designers com a equipe de projeto, bem como os diversos atores externos ao processo. Como objetivos especificos, pretende-se: ? Observar os indivíduos envolvidos em processos de design, seus métodos e instrumentos de projetação; ? Identificar padrões de coleta, organização e compartilhamento de informações de forma colaborativa; ? Diagnosticar se as informações com que essas equipes de projeto lidam variam significativamente no que se refere aos textos, desenhos, vídeos e protótipos; ? Compreender expectativas da indústria sobre ferramentas de gerenciamento de projetos em design.

A base deste trabalho se estabelece na investigação de exemplos de tecnologias sociais e dos métodos utilizados no design participativo, para propor a elaboração e a gestão de empreendimentos sociais, compatíveis à atuação do publico alvo. Nesse caso, o público alvo são as comunidades do Estado de Minas Gerais, priorizando o colar metropolitano, em função dos recursos e tempo para deslocamento dos pesquisadores.
