The RSD10 call for short and long paper proposals is closed, but the second call – for interactive contributions – is on! As with papers, presenters can be online or in person.
Playing with Tensions: Embracing complexity, collaboration and contexts in systemic design
10th Annual RSD Symposium
Complex systems do not lend themselves to simplification. Systemic designers have no choice but to embrace complexity, and in doing so, embrace tensions. RSD10 will explore design and systems thinking as mediators. Our human tendency is to relieve tension, and in design, to resolve “pain points”. But tensions reveal the paradoxes as sites of connection, breaks in scale, the emergence of complexity.
RSD10 is hosted by Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. The symposium offers a platform for discussing ongoing work with peers and presents the state-of-the-art in the systemic design field.
The fate of all complex adapting systems in the biosphere – from single cells to economies – is to evolve to a natural state between order and chaos, a grand compromise between structure and surprise.
