The Master Programme in Design + Change is an advanced-level two-year programme within Design, the main field of study.

Design involves creativity, criticality, and transformation. The design calls into question the state of things and makes an impact. Design challenges preconceptions, prejudices, norms, and stereotypes and provokes emotions, thoughts, sensibilities, and actions. Design can enhance our lives and our relationships with the world. It can make us attentive and empathic to the ecological and socio-cultural systems in which we live. In a world of many challenges, design can be an agent for sustainable change.

In shaping our futures, designers will face unprecedented challenges compared to what conventional designers faced during the twentieth century. In fact, the role of the designer will and should change. Instead of only designing for mass production, which was important during the first phase of industrialization, designers of futures must handle multiple roles and increasingly complex issues. As agents for change, designers will play key roles in shaping futures of sustainability.... [-]

Introduction

The Master in Design for Emergent Futures (MDEF) is organised by the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia and ELISAVA Barcelona School of Design and Engineering, in collaboration with the Fab Academy.

Vision

Human-Centered Design (HCD), broadly, is an approach to solve problems while keeping the concerns of the humans at the center of it. The output of the problem-solving approach could either be a product, a service, a system, or space. HCD is increasingly being used to solve complex problems through the design of digital products, services, and systems. Digital technology is becoming the core of most, if not all, aspects of human experiences. Hence it is vital to not only shape digital technology in ways that benefit each and every human being, but also to critically inquire into the inherent assumptions and their limitations while following a human-centered design approach. The M.Des in HCD at Srishti fosters an independent, self-critical, creative, and focused inquiry into human experiences with digital technology, both existing and emerging. This inquiry is driven by the activity of speculative and critical making with the digital material. The students will develop their own unique practice of human-centered design along the intersections of three paths. Namely,... [-]
