It serves as a searchable repository of peer-reviewed work in systemic design. SDA also publishes Contexts—The Systemic Design Journal.

ABOUT RSD

Mapping Studio: Unmapped

These exhibits are a departure from pictorial maps. Two site-specific installations mapped systems so they could be experienced from multiple points of view. The third, an experiment in art-science collaboration, resulted in richly rendered systemic representations of scientific findings. Also presented is the inventory of graphical devices.

Mapping Studio: Socioecological design

Three maps are generated through metaphors, and one considers dependence on virgin wood in home furniture. Locally Grown maps the spaces between the elements to explore systemic design interventions in human hair waste.

Mapping Studio: About our lives

Four projects from the National Institute of Design (India) represent contemporary exemplars of the metaphor style. They incorporate vivid graphics and extended formats and combine information density with detailed and expertly executed graphics.

Roundtable on mapping

Evan Barba, Jotte de Koning, Peter Jones, Praveen Nahar, Lorraine Randell, Birger Sevaldson, Mauri Suoheimo, and Sahil Thappa
