  1. 1. Transtructures : prototyping transitional practices for the design of postindustrial infrastructures

    Författare :Lorenzo Davoli; Johan Redström; Cameron Tonkinwise; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Infrastructures; transition design; postindustrial design; system design; drones; participation; design practices; automation; hacking; logistic; telecommunications; sustainable development; hållbar utveckling; design; design;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation is about 'transtructures', a term coined to describe new kinds of infrastructures that are more attentive and responsive to the needs of contemporary society, its emerging economies and technological capabilities. The purpose of this inquiry is to begin to explore the character and possibilities of a design practice that could guide responsibly and ethically the transition of existing industrial infrastructures towards these new configurations: what processes it could follow, and what materials it could include.

  2. 2. Living the Change : Designerly modes of real-life experimentation

    Författare :Martin Sjöman; Sara Ilstedt; Susanne Nilsson; Dan Lockton; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; design methods; transition design; participatory design; living labs; experimentation; sustainability; Art; Technology and Design; Konst; teknik och design; Machine Design; Maskinkonstruktion;

    Sammanfattning : The sustainability transitions required to address the climate crisis cannot be achieved by technology alone; radical lifestyle changes are needed. To contribute to meeting this critical challenge, design must move its focus from individual needs, desires, and behaviors to the level of the complex socio-technical systems that shape our society.

  3. 3. In conversation with simulation: The application of numerical simulation to the design of structural nodal connections

    Författare :Jens Olsson; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; 3D Printing; Design theory; Structural design; Structural efficiency; Simulation; Peridynamics; Force flux density; Nodal connections; Conceptual design; Steel structures; Design process; Digital design;

    Sammanfattning : The thesis explores methods for integration of structural analysis, design and production in a digital design environment. The somewhat ambiguous title implies the ambition to make such integration in relation to the explorative phase of the design process which is described by Donald Schön as having a conversational character.

  4. 4. ”Sketch and Talk”, Drawing lines between incarcerated humans, the interior, and “stuff”. Design methodologies for (well)-being in prisons, youth homes and psychiatric hospitals

    Författare :Franz James; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Design methods; Design methodology; Field drawing; Ethnographic drawing; Carceral design; Prison design; Youth homes; Forensic psychiatric hospitals; Sketching;

    Sammanfattning : With increasing global and local incarceration, the demand for prison beds is rapidly growing. The Swedish government’s plans for implementing youth prisons and amending laws regarding young people’s sentences risk increasing the already high numbers of mental health problems. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Shape and Being Shaped : Sketching with Haptics in Soma Design

    Författare :Charles Windlin; Kristina Höök; Jarmo Laaksolahti; Anders Lundström; Bill Buxton; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sketching; Soma Design; Constructive Design Research; Haptic Interaction Design; first-person; Människa-datorinteraktion; Human-computer Interaction;

    Sammanfattning : Sketching is an integral part of the design process, and it often occurs in the early ideation phase where the focus is on expressing ideas, thoughts, and emotions, allowing them to take shape and making it possible to share them with others to propel the design process forwards. In principle, sketching is a process of externalising thoughts into visualisations, and it influences the creator and collaborators by enabling them to realise and reflect on the possibility and viability of their ideas and develop them further by adding to or subtracting from the sketches.
