Can design, in all its manifestations and approaches, be ‘critical’ in its practice or in its production in the ‘real world’?

We have gathered a diverse range of international and local practitioners, all of whom in some way engage the nature of design as a form of expanded practice to address this question. The series features a multidisciplinary program of speakers who come from disparate, but complementary fields, including building and landscape architecture, as well as object, graphic, interaction and gaming design.
