Design Species

The RCA is hosting a series of Anglo-Dutch evening debates in the spring of 2006 called Shared Territories on contemporary issues in design and architecture.

What happens when you put people, design and technology together? Which environmental species and positions emerge, and how do they relate to each other, if they relate at all? Ranging from sensory and extra-sensory space-time distortions; ‘design noir’ - investigating behaviours beyond the normative and/or dystopian; radical media pragmatism or advanced tools, what form of cultural positioning are their practitioners applying in relation to the sciences? And what claim do they place on the future, now that the future has arguably been devalued, and indeed put at risk of being pseudo-comprehensively ‘future proofed’ by commercial interests?
