Presentation of Temes de Disseny #39 – Emerging Habitats: Design as a Worldmaking Agent 

06 Sep 23 — 06 Sep 23
Location Elisava (La Rambla, 30-32) Sala Aleix Carrió (First floor) / Online
Schedule 6:30 p.m.

Elisava Research invites you to the presentation of the latest issue of Temes de Disseny, that explores emerging habitats and design as a worldmaking agent across a variety of scales, settings and disciplines. Can design leverage its worldmaking potential, using its symbolic and operative apparatuses to proliferate various versions of the world? Can design maintain and even multiply plural worlds in the face of global homogenisation? Contributing authors manifest these fundamental and intertwined questions through a rich and diverse set of contributions compiled from radical design practices, applied research, case studies, practice-based reflections, and pictorials that are far-reaching in their intersectionality and forward orientation.

The event will be presented by the Guest Editors of this issue (Roger Paez and Mariana Amatullo), and the Editors-in-Chief and the Managing Editor of the journal.

There will also be a brief introduction of the Call for Authors for #40, about the ethical, theoretical and practical perspectives comprising the role of the designer in the 21st Century.
