Systems Oriented Design

The designerly way to work with systems

The main mission of Systems Oriented Design is to build the designers own interpretation and implementation of systems thinking so that systems thinking can fully benefit from design thinking and practice and so that design thinking and practice can fully benefit from systems thinking.

Workshop at Chalmers-2015

 

Every January i get a friendly invitation from professor Jaan-Henrik Kain at Chalmers School of Architecture in Gothenburg. These are truly international classes and they learn Gigamapping quickly. Nice to see that systemic design is picking up at some few architectural schools as well.

Here some pictures from this years workshop.

 

 

 

 

Two Special Issues on Systemic Design Released

 

RSD2

The two announced special issues on systemic design have now been published.
These two issues conclude the Relating Systems Thinking and Design 2 (RSD2) symposium from 2013 hosted by the Oslo School of Architecture and Design in Oslo Norway. The symposium initiated a three step process. With a call for abstracts, call for working papers after the symposium and production of the symposium proceedings and finally the development of full papers that were peer reviewed and published in the scientific design research journal Formakademisk.

This year’s symposium, RSD4 was a great success and follows a similar process. The proceedings including the extended abstracts, working papers, presentations and eventually videos will be published hopefully in February. The further publication process will be announced.

The procedures and calls for RSD4 2015 will follow soon.
So stay tuned to the activities and progress made in the field of systemic design.

Understanding Systemic Design

Peter Jones and Jeremy Bowes lecture from 2012 is worth revisiting when thinking of the emerging field of Systemic Design.

Systemic Design is the bigger landscape where SOD feels at home together with a range of other approaches and ideas. Peter contextualizes it in this lecture. The slides are comprehensive so though we are missing his voice it makes sense.
