Adaptability, a call to action
Adaptability, a commonly used buzzword that probably defines the point where we are heading know in these challenging times, becomes the title of this research seminar. Theory-driven, research-oriented and practice-related investigations from academia and private projects show the adaptability of design in general and the role of interior design in specific regarding its flexible esprit. Scale jumping applications explore the field of action that interior design achieves through its users, its specific context and in its socio-cultural attitude. Therefore, the research seminar does not follow a given expertise, rather it explores in search for dialogue, spreading approaches in a continuous learning. Finally, a call to action that leaves the comfort zone, allowing doubts and the ability to listen to others and the surrounding. This means, fostering process-driven rather than problem-solving design, investigation rather than readymade methodologies and small persistent impact rather than the attempt of the grand gesture.
