Design and Futures

Read Anne Burdick’s latest journal article, “Designing Futures from the Inside,” in the design and futures special issue of the Journal of Futures Studies.

In the introduction to the special edition, Editors Cher Potter and Stuart Candy write, “It is increasingly acknowledged within the futures studies community that operating with a largely verbal and theoretical bent over the past half century has afforded too little impact on actual future-shaping behaviours. Meanwhile, those in the design community recognise a need to interrogate higher-level consequences – the futures, the worlds – that their products, systems and other outputs help produce.”
