Gensai Design
Time and place: Wednesday 31 May at 13.30
Chair: Jiro Sagara – sagara-j@kobe-du.ac.jp
Local: Barnabas Wetton
Teaser: Design has the power to solve problems. The GENSAI Design is an example of this, that may solve a lot of problems happening in connection with any kind of disasters, such as earthquake, tsunami, volcanic eruption, hurricane, snow storm, including dispute or war. We can’t control nature or settle a dispute, however we can reduce damage or victims by design. These damages are magnified by human error, wrong information and wrong behavior.
In this workshop, some groups will discuss some topics of disasters after introduction of the GENSAI Design, then propose some ideas to solve some problems caused in the disaster.

The meeting will include some presentations of case studies and introduction, discussion and team work of ideas for our future collaboration in different forms. The methods, platforms and goals will be decided by the participants.

One of these initiatives is a new DESIS Philosophy Talk series entitled: Collaborative Democracy? A design-based approach where the philosophical and the design traditions will be brought in dialogue together in order to reflect on the idea of collaborative democracy. The seminar will explore how design can contribute to conveying the idea of collaborative democracy and its related practices in our contemporary societies.
