50 FUTURES DESIGN WORDS
The 50 words point to key terms and concepts, curated for design students and designer-researchers who’re learning how to engage in making, shaping and critiquing FUTURES DESIGN and DESIGN FUTURE LITERACIES. The 50 words are further connected to a range of activities covered in the UNITS and are a resource to consult in students’ learning through briefs/tasks/deliveries, whether in a studio course or when preparing term paper/presentation or thesis.
