We can learn from the general principles of the system theories new evaluation criteria, new solutions to better define the new design problems in highly resilient contexts, well-reasoned explanations of behaviour, well-supported foresight models. Design Decode aims to investigate the necessity of the convergence of systemic theories with the design methodologies for a new pragmatic turn and we currently are engaged with and interested to explore the future possibilities of:
We are always interested to expand our current and upcoming projects.
