RSD12 Concept—2023

Save the date. RSD12 is envisioned as a two-week programme, excluding weekends. The Georgetown proposal is a multi-event symposia concept, connecting systemic design hubs around the world in a sequence of in-person, online, and hybrid sessions. Hub symposia are augmented by a four-hour online program dedicated to full papers and emergent programming.

Systemic Design Association’s changes in 2022

I want to take this opportunity to make a special wish for the new year that we continue to connect people with design and build a future of peace and friendship. The future is now, and we are responsible for designing a better world.

This year’s RSD contributions were dedicated to exploring possibilities for systemic design. A call went out to question systemic design’s emerging shape, and the growing, remarkably interdisciplinary systemic design community responded.

In memoriam: Tom Snow

“… ecological design also includes the careful meshing of human purposes with the larger patterns and flows of the natural world”
