RSD3 Chair, Birger Sevaldson: The emerging renaissance of systems thinking in design responds to the increasing complexity in all challenges faced by designers, strategists, and transdisciplinary innovators.
Category: RSD3 Program
"Relating" Systems + Design
"The third Oslo symposium engaged over 200 participants and over 50 authors, and we found a much broader range of contributions across related fields of design and systemics. The five keynote speakers established a significant presence for the field, “relating” from both the systems and design disciplines."
– Birger Sveladson & Peter Jones, Editors RSD3 (publication will be posted soon)
Systems + Design
"I would like to discuss the current need for system practices and thinking in service design, with specific attention to why questioning the boundaries and nature of systems is becoming a fundamental design issue in itself."
"Design is, in many ways, an unfortunate word. Even its English origins are ambiguous, and it is used in many different ways from meaning 'evil intent' to 'transcendental novelty'. Other languages have no equivalent, and their words are often more helpful than design."

RSD3 Chairs and Editors: Birger Sevaldson and Peter Jones: The emerging renaissance of systems thinking in design responds to the increasing complexity in all challenges faced by designers, strategists, and transdisciplinary innovators.
RSD3 Keynote. Hugh Dubberly: We can begin to live in systems and make them our own. We can take responsibility for our world.
RSD3 Keynote. John Thackara: A new and global ‘leave things better’ politics that affirms our codependency with the biosphere.
RSD3 Keynote. Harold Nelson: A more tailored form will take shape through a process of self-organization—a type of dialogue that gives order and form to complex things.
RSD3 Keynote. Ranulph Glanville: The type of outcome, the ways in which they can be judges, the implicit criteria and the ethics involved are very different for engineering and design, and I will explore these a little.
RSD3 Keynote. Daniela Sangiorgi: An increase in complexity in service innovation has motivated the introduction of meta-level frameworks in service research introducing descriptions of service systems or service eco-systems, calling for interdisciplinary efforts to work toward innovation.
