This subject provides an understanding of the context in which designers work and an introduction to contemporary design theory. Students will study the emergence and development of design as an area of professional practice, focussing on key points of change from the nineteenth century to the present. Selected key issues will be covered, including the influence of political, social and technological changes on design practice historically and in the present. An independent research component provides an opportunity for in-depth investigation of an area of design relevant to each student.
