Abstract

Building on the inter-connection between adaptive problems, social innovation and design, the paper aims to investigate how design education could play a role in framing a systemic approach to social impact. The author will present the innovative teaching programme of the Master in Social and Collaborative Housing of POLI.design. While describing the overall educational structure, the discussion will focus on the workshops’ modules that combine service design with financial, architectural and sociological disciplines in one unique design project. By applying a community centred design approach, the workshops are organized around “intensive sessions” and “diffused sessions”, in which students co-design new service solutions with citizens and organizations and prototype collective actions, thus acquiring the skills needed to bring about the necessary change.

A partir de la interconexión entre ‘adaptive problems’, innovación social y diseño, el documento pretende investigar como la educación en diseño puede jugar un papel importante en la estructuración de un enfoque sistemático hacia el impacto social. El autor presentará el Master in Social and Collaborative Housing, el innovador programa de enseñanza del POLI.design. Al describir globalmente la estructura de enseñanza, la discusión se enfocará en los módulos de taller que combinan el diseño de servicios con las disciplinas sociales, de finanzas y arquitectura en un único proyecto de diseño. Aplicando un enfoque en diseño centrado en la comunidad, los talleres están organizados en torno a "sesiones intensivas" y "sesiones difundidas", en las cuales los estudiantes co-diseñan nuevas soluciones de servicio con ciudadanos y organizaciones, y hacen prototipos de acciones colectivas; de este modo adquieren las competencias requeridas para lograr el cambio necesario
