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]

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]

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.

Abstract [en]

The objective of this workshop is to create a space for synthesis and to build on the paper sessions on sustainability, with a focus on design education. What roles can designers play in the vision towards sustainability? What is required of design curricula, pedagogies, educators, academic institutions and wider partnerships to support students adopting these new or modi ed roles? The workshop aims to set an agenda for years to come and to create an ongoing ‘think and do-tank’. This interactive and action orientated workshop is led by an interdisciplinary group from the Cumulus network and the Cumulus working group for sustainability, representing European and Asian perspectives, and both theory and practice.

This will be a three hour-long workshop with practical outcomes. Max: 30 participants.

The workshop is structured in three consecutive sessions.

1. The synthesis of insights from paper sessions & shared examples of best practices.

2. The new designer roles at the intersection of curriculum, tradition and emerging socio-cultural, economic and ecological systems.

3. Designing: prototypes for integrating relevant and applicable sustainability learning into the design curriculum and academic institutions.

Outcome:

Exhibits: 1. prototypes for sustainability learning in academic institutions and in our wider partnerships; and 2. an agenda proposal for a ‘think and do-tank’ for ongoing Cumulus conferences.

Abstract [en]

Learning by Planning; Collaboration across the Environment, is a partnership, and collaboration between two Schools separated by some 17,000 kilometres, the Design School, Linnaeus University, Växjö, Sweden, and the Architecture Department at Unitec Institute of Technology, Auckland NZ. Notwithstanding this vast literal spatial distance, the commonalities of design pedagogy are readily apparent within both programmes, even though, one being a core design field, and the other sitting within architecture end of design continuum or spectrum. This paper aims to investigate this mutuality by learning from one another by way of disseminating framework’s, tools, design methodologies, and teaching praxis, and the core pragmatic similarity, that of embedded Sustainable Design. This proposition will parallel the context of each case studies of both courses / programmes chosen, from each Institute, and will conclude with a summary where foreseen outcomes will be addressed; Learning by Planning: Collaboration across the Environment.

Abstract [en]

‘How can we design a meaningful and relevant research platform that will support futures of sustainability?’ was the question guiding the two-and-a-half-year- long, co-creative and emergent metadesign process of establishing a new research platform at the Department of Design, Linnaeus University, Sweden. The meta focus on developing a whole research environment, as a design practice and design research endeavour, should be valuable for the design research community. Findings concern the viability of co-creative approaches in such a remit, negotiations of artistic/scientific research conventions, and the design institution’s position in the multi-disciplined university. The research has identified tensions and conflicts between the academic institution and construct, and the application of ontologies, epistemologies and methodologies deemed auspicious for sustainability endeavours. The paper itself is a collaborative effort between eleven of the researchers involved in developing the research platform.
