OPEN ACCESS: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/07370024.2019.1574225. This study reports on the results of a systematic literature review on ‘open design’ in academic fields including and beyond design and HCI. The review investigates how studies are framed as open design and open-source design (including ‘open hardware’): how researche...
Article
Incorporating concerns of sustainability and circularity into design practice is undoubtedly important for both design research and education. There is a need to equip novice designers with the skills to facilitate a sustainability-focused future, whilst also collaborating with industry to implement these concerns into contemporary design practices...

User experience evolves in accordance with users' attitudes, habits, and personality, as well as their prior experiences. Even though there are attempts to holistically frame the long-term experience of interactive products, there is still debate on how to guide designers in the design process of those products. To tackle this issue, this paper pro...
Article
A growing number of cities are deploying circular economy practices to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Makerspaces are community-driven initiatives enabling the collaboration between a city's diverse stakeholders in that objective. They can enhance the citizens' contribution to circularity by engaging them in circular ''maki...
Conference Paper

Openly shared design knowledge and open-to-participate design processes present potential for democratising innovation through diffuse value creation networks that can diverge into different directions and design outcomes. This potential mostly concretises through the distributed production paradigm that localises production, closes material loops...
Conference Paper
The act of designing involves the creation and implementation of products, services and systems for users, through increasingly critical approaches such as design for social innovation, participatory design, transition design, which emerged over the past couple of decades to challenge mainstream design practice. Nonetheless, defining a hierarchical...

With the dissemination and increased accessibility of makerspaces (e.g. fab labs, creative hubs, learning platforms), cities now present an opportunity for loosely managed, distributed fabrication opportunities to recapture embedded value in products and resources and re-distribute them for the benefit of the city. Istanbul Metropolitan City, with...

Pop-Machina H2020 project aims to explore the potentials for local circular economies through collaborative production in seven pilot cities. This endeavour requires initiating a sustainable maker symbiosis, through activating links among various maker ecosystem actors. This paper provides a snapshot of the initial steps of this, i.e. the deploymen...
Article
Emerged at the intersection of open-source, do-it-yourself and maker movements, and blurring of the lines among users, designers and producers, open design suggests a continuous process of co-designing open to everyone and demonstrates opportunities for repair, reuse and upgrading through transparent processes and design sharing. While such opportu...

With the rise, in recent years, of user-generated content and openly available knowledge, many design tools and methods on sustainability and Circular Economy have been developed and self-published online by practitioners and educators. In addition, there are many resources (e.g. policies, reports, tools, etc.) published by non-and intra-government...

Developing a successful design brief that tackles the current growing environmental problems, challenges the current dominant systems and enables circular solutions is a complex task. Briefs are an integral step for framing the design projects and they require a systemic approach to facilitate desired sustainable outcomes from projects. While there...

There is an increasing interest in teaching user experience design in many of the industrial design bachelor’s programs. The subjectivity of the topic requires new approaches as well as reliable and valid assessment tools. It has always been a challenge for the teachers to assess creative work in higher education. In relation, the assessment of how...

This document brings together materials produced for and during the one-day PhD by Design Satellite Session taking place as part of DRS2018 on June 25, as well as the remaining DRS conference running June 26-28, 2018, Limerick, Ireland. In line with the DRS2018 theme of 'Catalyst', the PhD by Design Satellite Session explored how design can be a ca...
Thesis
The rise in the open-source hardware practices, and Do-It-Yourself and Maker movements through newly-developing internet technologies (e.g. Wikis and user-generated content), and the dissemination of end-user focused digital production technologies (e.g. 3D printers, laser cutters, etc.) helped design practice evolve towards a more inclusive proces...

Happiness is one of the major influences in what makes people use products, and what makes those products an important part of daily life. What drives these aspects, some arisen from personal appraisement and some directly related to the product qualities, are important for designers, as the experiences designers form tend to affect these aspects h...

Son sınıf endüstri ürünleri tasarımı öğrencilerinin portfolyolarını tasarladıkları bir lisans dersi kapsamında, öğrencilerin projelerinin görsel sunumlarını hazırlarken tasarım süreçlerini anlatmakta zorluk çektikleri görülmüştür. Bu zorlanmanın iki nedenden kaynaklandığı düşünülmektedir: öğrencilerin görsel iletişim tasarımı konusunda deneyimsiz o...

Project
This is a graduate-level, educational design project conducted at METU Department of Industrial Design (Ankara, Turkey), between 10th March and 16th June 2022. The project aims at questioning the systems in place in a speculative future scenario in which cities can produce whatever they consume through local circular economies, with complete value recapture and zero waste. The students will utilise theories on everyday life, design justice, social interactions and utopias/dystopias.
Project
DF-MOD aims to identify the strengths and barriers of end-users, prosumers, makers and mass-producers to operate through an open design sharing environment, and to explore alternative ways of collaboration and doing business facilitated through mass-produced open design parts and products, which can enable the recapture of the added value of parts and components within a circular economy through the active involvement of these stakeholders in their production and post-use within a distributed network of fabrication.
