Design Fiction

Join Lawrence Technological University's College of Architecture and Design on Thursday, March 30th at 12:30pm ET for another innovative Spring 2023 Lunch and Learn lecture.

Design Fiction, a term he coined to describe the use of speculative design as a means of exploring and shaping the future.

In an economic down-cycle opportunities exist for re-inventing and innovating both in terms of the creation of new value, as well as the approaches to that value creation. Design Fiction is uniquely suited to mapping the next evolution of value by emphasizing the importance of the relationship between Imagination (creative practice) and Structure (work).

CEU: This lecture equals 1 credit. To prepare for any potential audit, we suggest you register for this lecture. Upon request and verification of attendance, CoAD will supply a certificate of completion.
