Join the Northeastern University and Boston design communities for the official launch event of Northeastern's new Center for Design. Human by Design is both an overview of the nature, structure, and initiatives of the Center for Design (CfD) and a showcase of the exemplary interdisciplinary design-oriented research activities it incubates.
Design is a bridge and interface between the opportunities that arise from scientific and technological advancements, and human needs and aims. By foreseeing and shaping technologies into products, services, and systems, design enables meaningful experiences and new behaviors. When design is everywhere, and everyone designs, capturing, understanding, and cultivating its fluid nature becomes essential, to make it stronger and let it play the role of catalyst and facilitator across disciplines.
Come to hear about and discuss the future of design as an ‘interdisciplinary and integrative discipline,’ and the mission of the CfD as a space for these new interdisciplinary exchanges. We encourage you to spread the word by sharing this event with your peers and ask that all guests RSVP through our event website.
