Imagination Lancaster


“Empathy”

“Sustainability”

“Future Design”

“Democratic Design”

“The Core of Design”

These were the buzz-words of this Design PhD Conference called “Imagination Lancaster”.

We just came back from a very nice trip to Lancaster, UK. Together with Northumbria University, Lancaster arranges a once a year conference for Design PhD students to get together and present their work. Highly recommended, we are thinking about the possibility of arranging something similar at our department.
