About this Research Topic | Stream 3
While working with the C3 ReSearch Stream 1 over the past few months, we began to see the need for a deep and thorough ‘thought revolution’ in the way designers see the world and the way we think. While changing the way we think has long been one of our key areas of ReSearch at C3 Living Design, the latest round of explorations has brought greater clarity and definition to the issue.
The complexity surrounding the big design tasks of the 21st century beg us to take our creative problem solving skills to the next significant level. And it will be a significant change. Change similar to that which brought about the scientific-industrial revolution of the 1700’s. The impacts of climate change, water scarcity and global urbanization are coupling with rapidly changing computer technology and a volatile socio-economic realm to shake the structure of modern problem-solving and design thought off it’s foundations.
From our perspective, design now requires more applied systems, integrative + interdisciplinary design thinking. Pattern Thinking makes this list as well and we see it as a a form of Systems Thinking. In response to this new understanding, we’ll be shifting design process + method ReSearch from Stream 1 (What is the Role of Design in a Resilient Society) to Stream 3 allowing Stream 1 to focus more closely on designs’ role within our larger society | This ReSearch topic was started on June 27 ,2016
