How are values taken into account in projects that carry out research through industrial and architectural design? A seed project of the Delft Design for Values Institute (DDfV) is currently exploring this question. Preliminary results were presented at the DDFV Playground Meeting of 17 May 2018. In this blog post a short report on those results – and a call to participate in a follow-up workshop.
"Values as such never conflict, only the practices in which they are embedded do." This seemingly simple claim by DDFV-researcher Annemiek van Boeijen is what stuck with me most after the interesting and engaged discussion that we had at the DDFV Playground Meeting of 15 March. It is actually an important insight that is key to what the Delft Design for Values Institute does.
