Design disciplines are evolving their processes and products within a shifting social economy, one that demands a positive social and environmental return. This raises many important questions for expanding fields of practice surrounding a wider range of methods and processes including participatory design, social science research, building sciences, technology, and more. What models can we integrate and how do we interpret findings to affect potential solutions? How do we converge expertise? These questions about interdisciplinary integration are especially important now, when we are up against complex challenges at larger scales of impact for humanity and the environment, and the built environment is a lever for change.

Join us as we explore a wide range of ways a diversity of experts are adapting their philosophies and practices to address these issues. We'll also dive into collaborative activities to get a sense for how transdisciplinary experts engage to better understand the communities they're designing with and embed the values that guide the solutions.
