Danish Design Center Seminar: "How should societal design change when the society expands?"
Technology Development and Innovation Center are pleased to welcome members of the Danish Design Center at OIST. While they host a series of sessions for their partner, DBIC, they are opening one to the OIST community. No registration is necessary.
Join us at this intense session with the CEO of The Danish Design Center (DDC), Christian Bason. Dr. Bason will introduce you to the work and research of DDC and give you an exclusive insight into the thoughts and beliefs that have formed his latest book EXPAND, in which he argues that when challenges in society expand, so should the use of design expand.
