CfD Metadesign Initatives

Design for Emergency

We have launched Design for Emergency, an open design platform to face the Covid-19 emergency through design.

Through this platform, we are collecting information on the problems, needs, and feelings of people dealing with containment measures, such as home isolation and social distancing. Results of this ongoing analysis are openly available to designers and developers, who can collaborate on ideating and implementing human-centered solutions that connect, inform, support, and entertain communities in new ways.
The initiative has soon become global, involving countries in three continents, and it is still growing.

Team: Dr. Sara Colombo,  Prof. Paolo Ciuccarelli

Metadesign Series

We envision a meta-platform comprised of existing and new platforms, for building a common understanding and fostering collaborative action. This meta-platform will consist of talks, seminars, documents, and other shared initiatives. We aim at sparking conversations within and outside the design field, both in the academic context and in the professional domain: we are reaching out to practitioners, design lovers, academics, and industry players.
