Transition Design Symposium: March 2015
A Transition Design Symposium was hosted at the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University on March 7, 2015 and was attended by the School’s doctoral alumni, faculty and several invited guests. The purpose of this symposium was to extend the Transition Design conversation beyond the School and develop a body of material that can be shared with other educators, researchers and practitioners. Among the guests attending were: Ezio Manzini, Milan Polytechnico; Arturo Escobar, University of Chapel Hill; Anne-Marie Willis, editor, Design Philosophy Papers; Lara Penin & Eduardo Staszowski, Parsons New School; Damian White, Rhode Island School of Design; and Dennis Doordan, University of Notre Dame.
