The eco-social perspective is an active direction that sees social issues intertwined with ecological ones and that, above all, sees design as a strategic tool to forecast and build more inclusive, cooperative, symbiotic and convivial future scenarios. The Laboratory of Design for Sustainability invites you to navigate our way towards an interconnected and beyond human-centered perspective.
 

Rooftop Design Talks presents:

Laboratory of Design for Sustainability I DIDA UNIFI invites you to navigate our way towards an interconnected and beyond human-centred perspective.

Framing the contemporary scenarios, through reflection cues and bibliographical and iconographical references coming from various disciplines, the eco-social perspective is proposed as a possible way forward for the designer who has to deal with these troubled times.

Future designers do not have to be afraid of complexity and must acquire the necessary skills to deal with it, in the awareness that adopting a critical and systemic approach will be one of the most important soft skills to be employed.

From this point of view, the eco-social perspective is an active direction that sees social issues intertwined with ecological ones and that, above all, sees design as a strategic tool to forecast and build more inclusive, cooperative, symbiotic and convivial future scenarios.

The Laboratory of Design for Sustainability (LDS) is part of the DIDALabs system of the Department of Architecture of the University of Florence. Its attention focuses on the contribution of Design discipline to the sustainability theme, analyzed with a holistic and critical approach, in its multiple aspects: environmental, social, economic and cultural.

LDS team includes professors, researchers, PhD candidates and trainees that work together in the various fields of design action – product, service, communication, process and system - always adopting a multi and interdisciplinary approach to the design context.

Starting from these premises and with reference to the serious contemporary upheavals that have occurred, the LDS research group has directed its attention towards understanding the complex challenges (or perhaps it would be better to say missions) that await the designer profile.
