Design has been co-opted, and used to reinforce the status quo: buildings as financial assets demonstrating wealth and power; compelling advertising to sustain consumption; commodity fetishism and so forth.
However, design, as creative problem-solving offers many potential solutions for the social and ecological challenges currently faced. We argue that a value-led design approach can be a means for challenging power structures and facilitating greater social and environmental justice.
In this session Transition by Design will draw on examples of alternative modes of design practice, including examples of their own work, to generate a discussion centred around the question, what is value-led design?
