Abstract [en]

How can we, together, make our home on Earth in a time of mass extinction, climate change and social segregation? In this book two interplaying housing crises converge. The first concerns affordable and suitable housing for groups unprioritised by the housing market: older persons, students and migrants. The second concerns our home on Earth: science gives us but a decade to avert catastrophic climate change. This book aims at both reporting on research in the project BOOST metadesign and providing hands-on advice akin to that offered in home economics classes. The book starts performing Oikology – Home ecologics, a field of knowledge and practice in times of complexity, messiness and never finished labour of making homes together within Earth’s limits. The exploration of housing development for older persons, students and migrants in a context of sustainability has been carried out during 2016–19 through processes of co-creation in urban and rural parts of Småland, southern Sweden. Metadesign has opened up for a holistic and systemic take on home making that integrates different dimensions of sustainability and moves from the small and local to the all-encompassing. This book is for people who make homes in their personal or professional lives. It imagines an overarching paradigm of home making which starts from relationships. This is exemplified through speculative scenarios, a set of cruxes to be bounced into the planning process, methods for transdisciplinary co-creation and 29 recipes for home making.

Abstract [en]

Transnational Living Lab for Active Ageing is an ambitious research project across Sweden and Japan, with the aim of improving the experience of ageing through social design and innovation. A core challenge is loneliness, which is addressed through interventions in the remit of work/occupation, housing, mobility. The Languaging Loneliness workshop has been developed to fast forward exploration of individual and collective experience of loneliness to inform development of policies, products and services. Tests to date in Sweden and Japan indicate that the workshop itself can reduce experience of loneliness.

The overall aim of this research is to explore evaluative frameworks and approaches fitting for the living lab community that genuinely capture innovative and unconventional methods directed at stimulating innovation and improving well being – emotional and physical, as exemplified by the Languaging Loneliness workshop.

Expected Outcomes:

– A comparison and map of different evaluative frameworks in the specific context of an intervention to reduce experience of loneliness.

– Brainstorming of new approaches to evaluation in the specific context of social design and wellbeing/quality of life.

– We anticipate that this workshop will take us further in capturing and communicating elusive emotional benefits of living lab approaches.

Opportunity to participate in a rich discussion and community around the dilemmas, opportunities, future pathways to evaluation in the living lab context. Participants will get hands-on experience from a workshop that synergises science and art, opportunity to share experiences, engage in critical and creative discussions, and design new pathways for evaluation of co-creation, ready for trial in the home context.

Abstract [en]

Design as catalyst for change entails working with uncertainty, venturing into new ways of knowing and complex transdisciplinary collaborations. This can be provocative, messy, awkward - even frightening, since it involves an element of risk-taking. The risks may concern asserting epistemological positions lower down a normative hierarchy, saying no to a conventionally termed strong financial proposition, or exploring a new visual language. 

Using metadesign frameworks and tools, this workshop starts from concrete examples of risky moments to explore how design situations and cultures can be more allowing and supportive of risk-taking. Specifically, the workshop uses an approach of ‘languaging’, manifested through drawing, writing, film-making and embroidery, to probe and reimagine risk-taking. The workshop draws on insights into risk-taking from the Swedish-Japanese research project Transnational Living Lab for Active Ageing, the development project BOOST - proposals for housing at intersection of migrants, students and ageing population, and Design + Change - the development and implementation of visionary new degree programmes. The facilitators have long experience from setting up safe spaces for risky explorations across sectors, internationally. Workshop participants will leave with a framework and process to explore risk-taking co-creatively, new narratives of risk-taking in change work and a resource of examples of risk-taking.

Abstract [en]

The sustainability imperative requires that we REDO the products, systems and paradigms we are part of, think and do. Yet, entangled habit and fear can stop us from engaging in profound processes of change. In this talk, I want to creatively critically explore the man-madeness of the systems we live by, and design’s agile dance with them. I will draw on experiences from education, research and play to discuss both the promise and responsibility of freeing design.

Abstract [en]

This workshop explores power relations in collaborative design research. As co-creation is becoming more established and even something of a holy grail, it is important to revisit and further understandings of, for example, the limits to democracy in collaborative research and conflicting agendas. The workshop draws on ongoing research that explores housing needs and solutions at the intersection of an ageing population, students and migrants, and that engages multiple stakeholder groups in collaborative processes. The proposed workshop will stage an enactment of the research design, from invitation to analysis, with the workshop participants playing the different roles in the process. This will enable us, collaboratively, to critically and creatively engage with some concrete interfaces to power negotiations as well as the meta level of power dynamics in collaborative research.

We will enrich our understandings of power relations by engaging with indigenous thinking, expressed as decolonizing methodologies.

Abstract [en]

As disciplines and practices archaeology and design stand in an interesting relationship to one another. Whereas it is the business of designers to construct material and, at times, immaterial universes that can sustain life (or, as we shall see, destroy life), it is the business of archaeologists, in the traditional sense of the word, to look at the remnants of those universes and the traces of those who populated them in order to understand the past and the ways in which it resonates in the present and in our conception of our possible futures.

This leads us to pose the following question: If an intimate relationship can be located at the interstitial space between archaeology and design, what might happen if we were to construct transversal lines between and across these disciplines, and what concepts would be required for us to do so?

Drawing upon the concept of the Anthropocene – a concept opening up to precisely such transdisciplinary and transversal approaches – this article explores the notion of a post-anthropocentric speculative archaeology interweaving a theoretical line of thought and a performative, fictive trajectory.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this workshop is to share and further understandings of how tools for co-creation can be used to mobilise many ways of knowing and many different knowledge holders in the context of active ageing. Participants will experience the Five Levels of Story-telling tool, to create a shared map of understandings of active ageing, and engage in a fast process of social design and prototyping in this context. Together we will explore how tools for co-creation, developed in different contexts, for example industry and academia, can be synergised to meet the demands of a quadruple helix collaboration, in the context of health, care and ageing. The workshop draws on the project Transnational Living Lab for active ageing, a collaboration between Swedish and Japanese researchers, citizens, municipalities and industry partners. This 27-month long project aims to change the experience of ageing, by targeting issues of loneliness and segregation through social design. It is funded by Vinnova, Sweden and the Japan Science & Technology Agency, Japan.

This workshop addresses the theme of healthcare in a wide sense. We define health as the physical and emotional well-being of individuals and communities as well as the interdependent health of other species and the long-term health of resources our societies depend upon. We define care as the respectful and health supportive relations between people, between people and other species, as well as the respect an individual shows herself.

The specific focus of the workshop is active ageing and the particular project Transnational Living Lab for Active Ageing.
