RSD7 – Challenging Complexity by Systemic Design towards Sustainability

Chair & Editor: Silvia Barbero, Politecnico di Torino

The RSD7 symposium was held at the Politecnico di Torino, 23rd-28th October 2018, for the first time in Italy, defining an important collaboration among the institutions that founded the Systemic Design Research Network (SDRN) in 2012. Not by chance, this symposium has seen the official establishment of the Systemic Design Association (SDA), with a public announcement during the first day. A new phase of the association of the RSD symposiums started by proposing an inclusive approach to expand the membership and engage different systems- and design-oriented professionals and researchers while looking after a strong identity of systemic design as a discipline.

RSD7 Symposium Proceedings

RSD symposium proceedings are listed in the following order: introduction, keynote speakers, workshops, papers, systems maps.

Books & Beers

RSD7 featured relaxed “learning-and-doing time”. At the end of each day, three decompressing “Books and Beers” events were hosted in the close venue of Eataly. Five recently published books were introduced to the audience and discussed in a more informal environment.
