Designing Futures: Speculation, Criticism, Innovation

Benedikt Groß

Design Futuring is a young field of activity where designers and other creatives sketch and experiment with different (desirable) futures, making them comprehensible. Mandir and Groß present methods and tools that enable practitioners to design far more than surfaces and interfaces - these are methods and tools that, in the best-case scenario, will enable them to be designers of a better world.
