Introduction
Rosie Hornbuckle is a researcher and educator focusing on interdisciplinary communication for alternative scenarios of future design practice. Rosie’s current work is concerned with the role of design and communication practices in supporting complex collaborations for example in the development and adoption of material technologies that are less resource-intensive or technologies which open up new possibilities in healthcare development. Exploring systemic material and social innovation.

Conference Paper
Complex collaborations involving multiple disciplines and stakeholders are seen as necessary in the pursuit of transformative innovation. Yet these ‘systemic’ science & technology-led projects pose a challenge for knowledge exchange, co-creation and co-operation. Design research teams brought in, often to work on tangible outcomes, are faced with c...

As designers increasingly become involved in larger and more complex multidisciplinary collaborations, they find themselves in unprecedented contexts of practice. New tools and methods are needed to support these challenging ways of working. This paper presents an ethnographic study focusing specifically on the role of materials samples in supporti...

Traditionally, designers communicated from one knowledge area to another largely through graphics, using conventional linear models where information is provided in a unidirectional flow from the experts (who know) to non-experts (who don’t know). This is problematic because the communication is based on experts’ assumptions about the ‘audience’ an...

There has been an awakening in recent years in the field of design research to the idea that designers can take on a number of roles other than the traditional narrow focus on products. This paper draws on existing research to explore new ways of applying design knowledge in the circular economy, and in particular in relation to the development of...

Proximity, we feel, is not a concept that has been explored in-depth, in design research. Now in the post-pandemic era, with the further acceleration of information and communication technology (ICT) transforming our tools for connecting over distance, notions of proximity are increasingly challenged. Coupled with the complexity of societal problem...
Method
This hybrid workshop aims to model diverse and inclusive stakeholder partnerships for circular economy challenges, where design will play a central role in visioning, convening and supporting multi-skill teams, who are each focused on utilizing a different, local waste stream. Drawing on a specific, developed case study of Laxta Wool within the reg...

Circular Design is inherently systemic, it is the framework by which we can connect material flows and their impacts with human experiences and actions. Through a number of small and large collaborative research projects and various experimental methodologies it has become clear that working with other disciplines is both essential and incredibly i...

In this paper postcards from the EU funded Horizon 2020 Trash-2-Cash (2015-2018) project - completed by workshop participants – are presented in three tables with a focus on how they contributed to the building of communication channels, shared understanding and methods in this inter-disciplinary consortium work. The Trash-2-Cash project aims to su...

To achieve a circular textile industry – one that has closed complex resource loops at all stages of the lifecycle – collaboration is required between diverse stakeholders. Working with people from a broad set of backgrounds, cultures, training, professions, with different languages can be extremely challenging, and progress when working together f...
