In just a week before the first anniversary of 311, the Great East Japan Earthquake, we have an opportunity to invite Dr. Alessandro Biamonti from the Polytechnic of Milan Design Faculty at just the right time. Purpose of this event shall be a reflection about the role of design in the wide context of social and economical big changes.
His lecture will introduce a vision of our time and its characteristics, from the point of view of design. Design would be defined, within this scenario, with references to a broader historical dimension.
After his talk, Fumiko Ichikawa, a senior researcher at Hakuhodo Innovation Laboratory will join in the session and engage in wide-ranging discussion through few main keywords, so that we set the basis for a discussion about new paradigms for a sustainable development for an evolved society.
