"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."

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."

– Daniela Sangiorgi: Bringing Complexity into Service Design Research

"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."

– Ranulph Glanville: Knowing and Designing
