12 – Descolonizar el diseño: una mirada a aprender del otro

Valentina Alcalde

El estudio se centra en el aprendizaje que se da a través del diseño social y participativo en la ONG Dexde con la organización de mujeres con discapacidad tejedoras de palma, llamada Kalamissoo, ubicada en Usuy, Senegal. Basado en evidencia empírica, la investigación destaca la diversidad de experiencias de aprendizaje. Estas se dividen en dos, la primera presenta las múltiples exclusiones que enfrentan las mujeres, y su experiencia en la organización. La segunda se centra en el intercambio de aprendizajes relacionados con las técnicas y con los saberes en la vida cotidiana. Finalmente, se concluye que esto es posible mientras la descolonización se construya como un proceso entre diversidades.

 
 

13 – Fostering resistance: Acknowledging notions of power exertion and politics in design facilitation

Natalia Villaman

Design facilitation, intended as both the overarching process and the mediating act between a facilitator and other actors, has increasingly gained popularity due to the participatory, inclusive, co-creative, and empathic principles associated with it. The sudden recognition of the field has nonetheless led to the use and misuse of participatory practices, causing an exponential loss of their political origins. Design facilitation has become a buzzword, rendering inevitable the adoption and adaptation of different definitions to it. The research delves into the interconnectedness between design, power, politics and participatory practices to explore contemporary mainstream notions within design that are worth being revisited and challenged from an alternative stance. It focuses on acknowledging and rendering visible design facilitation’s otherwise often unaddressed political nature by making more explicit its underpinning structures and components. It critically contrasts contemporary views of facilitation, which are typically apolitical, against revised notions of it that take into consideration power dynamics and political implications with the aim of highlighting the importance of unpacking concepts and areas of design to foster a more accountable practice and research, as opposed to merely moving on a superficial level. 

 
 

14 – How might we inform design research through participatory design approaches?

Luis García

The City of Indianapolis, through the Department of Metropolitan Development, invited the graduate program in Design to collaborate on a project seeking to understand the experiences and desires of both users and stakeholders of the Downtown Canal Walk and surrounding areas. Multiple stages of a human-centered design process aimed to understand the past and present and reimagine the future of Indianapolis public spaces. This summary focuses on two phases of the data collection process where, through a participatory design approach, people contributed with their vision for the future of Indianapolis. 

 
 

15 – Development of communication tool for participatory design workshop for architecture/urban design

Takumi Yano

In many cases participatory design workshops in architectural/ urban design are conducted based on the assumption that all the participants can share the common natural language on the same level. This writing illustrates the difference between text-based communication and sketch based communication in architecture/urban design process. The method for the experiment is Brain Writing and the Brain Writing is evaluated by coding and its comparison. The result shows that there are clear differences between text-based communication and sketch-based communication. Text-based communication can share the process of thinking more than sketch-based communication does, whereas sketch-based communication can illustrate the result of thinking more than text-based communication does.

 
 

16 – AlterDiseño

Miguel Andres Toro Alfonso, Brian Alexis Anzola Anzola, Mayra Alejandra Guerrero Pulido, Juan Esteban Molano Saavedra, Valentina Parra Medrano, Luis Alvaro Cárdenas Gómez

AlterDiseño, un proyecto estudiantil situado en la comunidad del programa de Diseño Industrial de la Universidad Nacional de Colombia. Impulsado por discusiones entre estudiantes en torno a inconformidades, principalmente sobre la academia tradicional y las temáticas abordadas, sumado a condiciones contextuales particulares que fomentan el desinterés entre estudiantes con su disciplina y su comunidad. Surge en 2019, bajo principios de una organización horizontal, con la intención de construir una plataforma de conexión entre estudiantes, docentes y egresados, por medio de la creación o facilitación de espacios reflexivos, críticos y sensibles para una transferencia recíproca de conocimientos desde diversas disciplinas hacia el diseño.  En su participación con la comunidad, se han desarrollado variedad de talleres creativos y prácticos que han fomentado la generación de lazos inter-semestrales, inter-disciplinares e inter-universidades. Como consecuencia, se redujo la fricción para crear nuevos colectivos, generar nuevas alianzas, proponer nuevas formas y diversificar los futuros posibles.
