On Wednesdays, 4 October 2017, 8.45-10.45, Room F, the third lecture/discussion of the series Understanding key concepts of Complex cities graduations will take place The series is dedicated to Complex cities students. Students that have chosen another research group are invited to participate!

Good design? Discussing design from a critical perspective.
During this event we will discuss key concepts from the field of design. We will elaborate design as a practice that evolves in the realm of architecture, planning and governance. Against this background we will identify characteristics of design proposals and processes and how they unfold their agency in different realms. The event aims at a precise definition of what ‘design’ is in Complex cities graduations. We seek to encourage students to critically reflect on the intended scope of their design work, at an early moment of the graduation process.
