Codesign and coproduction is rapidly spreading in e.g. product design, communications design and environmental design. Traditional design fields have to be re-thought and new venues for the designer are opening up as designers have to engage in open collaborations with a network of non-designers. We call this design profile, codesign.
For the codesigner research, sketching and making goes hand in hand. Working with generative prototyping, collaborative inquiries and sustained participation the codesigner takes part in a critical exploration of possible futures. The MA-programme in codesign combines an orientation towards research, with studio-based teaching and real life assignments with external partners.
