Speculative Design: Futures Prototyping for Research and Strategy

February 5, 2017 1:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Location: SVA 136 – 6th Fl, 631F

In our world where technologies are increasingly a source of significant disruption in people’s lives, emerging methods from speculative and critical design practice are finding their way into the designer’s and researcher’s toolkit as powerful ways to create new kinds of meaning and perspective that create new value for organizations. In this tutorial, you’ll get up to speed on the latest speculative design practice, explore its value as a research tool and for the development of strategy, and participate in an exercise to experience the workings of these approaches.

Participants will leave this workshop with

  • A foundational understanding of Speculative & Critical Design (SCD) principles and methods
  • Examples of SCD in practice and experience of an SCD exercise
  • An understanding of the value of SCD methods for research and strategy development and the ability to identify when to apply SCD methods in your work
