MEET THE CHAIR

Our department takes a unique approach to design and technology, focusing on highly conceptual, speculative, and inventive work, with an emphasis on social, cultural, economic, and environmental sustainability. We encourage our students to anticipate the world as it will be, that is to help shape the needs, desires, and priorities of the world around them. As such, we mentor students to be creative risk-takers, critics, innovators, and visionaries.
