Design as Collective Intelligence


UBC Robson Square, Vancouver / CA

16 – 18 January 2014

This eighth international conference on the fundamentals – the meaning and purpose of design – aims to bring together researchers, educators and design practitioners in a discussion on the nature and the future of design. Encompassing the theoretical and the empirical alongside a discussion on design processes, this gathering of experts promises a mix of pragmatism and social idealism. It is also open to virtual presentations. (source:
