The program engages with consumption design, designed sites and design processes from a societal perspective. The program focuses on relationships between people, objects and places paying particular attention to peoples’ diverse practical and symbolic relationships to design and designed sites. This nexus is unfolded in relation to mobility, consumption and experiences in both production (design processes) and consumption (the purchase and use of things and places).
