The isdaT design course grants access to areas of knowledge dealing with all of contemporary social contexts and fosters the discovery of a wide range of practices, whether these are oriented towards research or various professional exercises.
Social, political, and economic issues are developed in a transdisciplinary mode, centred on the “human” and the notion of “creation”.
The frameworks within which design intervenes are endlessly diversified in a society undergoing complex, heterogeneous transformations that are constantly accelerating. Design teaching is therefore no longer solely limited to the traditional fields of the object and space, but extends to grasping decisive concepts and questions currently in debate. The course develops a corpus of scientific and critical analyses, methodologies, and tools that probe the conditions of existence (local/global/glocal) and individual states of being in the world. Associated with sister disciplines (art, architecture, town planning, landscape, etc.) or distant ones (biology, neurosciences, etc.), it sparks an examination of proven, emerging, or prospective practices that question notions of scale, temporalities, and economies, enabling experimentation with the diverse materialities and modes of production of the projects.
