Program Description:


  • Through intensive participatory workshops, study tours, studio visits and lectures this class examines the advantages of interdisciplinary community-based collaboration.
  • Collaboration, activism, design, business


Perhaps more so than in any other region, the practice of design in Scandinavia is deeply embedded in the cultural identity of the place. Innovative design in Scandinavia is a highly valued part of daily life, persisting ingeniously in the most commonplace of conditions. Design is apparent in every facet of their culture—from print media to city planning.

Through lectures, guest lectures, study tours, studio visits, readings and assignments in critical looking/thinking/making, students in “Scandinavia by Design” will gain first-hand experience of the many variables that have and continue to influence the Scandinavian mindset in relation to art, design, visual culture, process and execution.
