Towards Relational Design
A third wave of design follows and departs from twentieth-century experiments in both form and content, which have traditionally defined the spheres of avant-garde practice. However, the new practices of relational design include performative, pragmatic, programmatic, process-oriented, open-ended, experiential, and participatory aspects. Paralleling developments in contemporary art, this new phase is preoccupied with design's effects, extending beyond the design object, the rhetorical logic of "problem-solving," and the "authorship" of designers.
