Designing Alternatives

Catharine Rossi (Organiser)

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in conference


"Designing Alternatives” is part of a research and teaching project by Sonia Matos and Cat Rossi. Design plays a vital role in tackling the economic, environmental and social challenges facing us today and tomorrow, and both design practitioners and educators need to be equipped with the right tools to address these unprecedented scenarios. Bringing together a number of speakers engaged in 'alternative' approaches to design practice, this symposium will examine how we can find ways to educate, interpret and communicate the different design approaches these challenges entail. Designing Alternatives has been organised by Dr Sonia Matos and Dr. Catharine Rossi and has been made possible thanks to the University of Edinburgh's Research and Knowledge Exchange Committee Fund.
