Kyushu University Faculty of Design is working on the fundamentals of design science to systematize design. We were pleased to invite Dr Daijiro Mizuno, a specially-appointed professor of Kyoto Institute of Technology, KYOTO Design Lab, to share with us, “Research Through Design – Theory and Practice”.
To gain knowledge through design practice is to Research through Design (RtD). As the practical domain of design is expanding from products to services and sustainability, the knowledge that can be gained by actually moving the mind and body is becoming an issue. How has RtD been accepted in Japan, and what should it be?
Specially Appointed Professor of Kyoto Design Lab at Kyoto Institute of Technology. After earning a master’s and doctoral degree at RCA, he returned to Japan and was involved in various design projects. He authored, co-authored, and translated major publications including “What is Critical Design” and “Can Fashion be Updated?”. He also won major awards include “Speculative, Wearable, Fashionable” (winner, Ars Electronica STARTS Prize, 2017) and “Transition” (winner, IDFA 2019).
