INTS 111.3: Design and Society

We live in a designed world. From the clothes we wear, to the books we read and the phones we use, to the homes we live in and the public spaces we visit, most aspects of our built environment have been “designed” for us. This interdisciplinary team taught class will start by dismantling the notion that the practice of design is simply about making something look good and then move on to an examination of how professionals from a wide range of disciplines use design principles to achieve goals ranging from making a better widget to building a better world.
