TransFabriC - Institute of Circular Transfabrication

TransFabriC - Institute of Circular Transfabrication materializes the ambition of the National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts to accompany the development of social and citizen practices for the emergence of a social, solidarity and circular economy (SSCE). The aim is to create an operating eco-system, training courses and a research program, together capable of bringing about the emergence of an ESSC that meets the historical missions of the CNAM.

Mediums in design

We are in need of inquiry into the epistemology of practice. What is the kind of knowing in which competent practitioners engage? How is professional knowing like and unlike the kinds of knowledge presented in academic textbooks, scientific papers, and learned journals? In what sense, if any, is there intellectual rigor in professional practice?
- Donald A. Schön (1983)

Studying the everyday life would be an absurd undertaking, and anyway fated to catch nothing of its object, if studying the everyday life would explicitly be with the intention to transform it.

Designing for Systemic Change

Many societal challenges require a systemic approach towards change. An approach where multiple stakeholders together create insight in the challenge at hand, and explore possible directions for systemic change. This session explores the concept of Designing for Systemic Change, including: what is it, how do we approach it, and what are the challenges we face?

People Place Process: A self-reflection tool to become a professional in design thinking, based on pedagogical action research

The nature of design thinking projects requires a great capacity to solve situated-inquiry problems (versus technical problem solving – Schön). Design thinking requires practitioners to become reflective professionals. This piece of research provides a protocol and tools to guide their journey of self-reflection.
