HARLAND, R.G. and LOSCHIAVO DOS SANTOS, M.C., 2009. From greed to need: notes on human-centred design. IN: Interrogations: Creative Interdisciplinarity in Art and Design Research: Proceedings of AHRC Postgraduate Conference 2009, pp. 141-158.
This exploratory paper identifies some of the critical debates that have
resulted in the city problematic. The context for this discussion is the
need for transition from an approach to design that serves the few who
are economically privileged, to a situation whereby design confronts
some of the challenges associated with the less fortunate in our global
society. A key outcome of the inquiry is that a better understanding of
affiliation is essential if interdisciplinary design process is to succeed.
