This book makes a plea for adaptive mentalities within design pedagogy through a non-normative approach to design practices. It investigates an attitude in and towards design education that is socially engaged, politically aware, generous in approach, lyrical in tone, experimental in form, and collaborative in practice. Additionally, it explores the kinds of work being developed and how an institute can be responsible in supporting an securing these modes of practice. The book is geared towards design students and educators worldwide, and includes a selection of works developed in the context of the Design Department of the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam.
