Pedagogy of the design option
The teaching of design at isdaT gives access to fields of knowledge that deal with all contemporary societal contexts and promotes openness in a wide variety of practices, whether they are focused on research or various professional practices.
Using a trans-disciplinary mode, social, political and economic issues are developed and centred around “the human” and the notion of “manufacturing”. The teaching of design is no longer limited to the only traditional fields of object and space, but seizes on decisive concepts and issues that are currently in hot debate. It develops a corpus of reflections, methodologies and tools, both scientific and critical, which probe the conditions of existence (local/global/glocal), and the individual’s state of being in the world. When associated with related (art, architecture, urban planning, landscaping…) or not so related (biology, neuroscience…) disciplines, it brings about thoughts on proven, emerging or prospective uses, which question notions of scale, temporality and savings and make it possible to experiment with various materials and production methods.
