For some time now, Benedict Singleton and myself are collaborating on taking the Ark-Inc project to the next level. As part of this process we wrote a paper titled “Ark-Inc: An Alternative View of What Designing for Sustainability Might Mean” which was successfully presented at the Changing the Change conference in Turin, July 2008.
There is great review of the ten best papers of the conference on Core77 and we were pleased to see our paper there.
From the conference site: “Changing the Change seeks to make a significant contribution to a necessary transformation that involves changing the direction of current changes toward a sustainable future. It specifically intends to outline the state-of-the-art of design research in terms of visions, proposals and tools with which design can actively and positively take part in the wider social learning process that will have to take place.”
