Welcome to Future Human by Design (FHbD)
This site sets out a range of research areas I’m investigating, including; exploration of the intersection of Futures Thinking and Design, and Philosophy of Design.
Research topics will cover a range of topics including: Graham Harman’s Object-Oriented Ontology, Philosophy of Design, Futures Thinking for Humanitarian Scenarios, Futures Thinking and Design Thinking methods.
Originally this project was created by Steven Santer, as part of research and assignment work for RMIT, Masters of Design Futures (MDF) Leadership module. It now includes further research into Philosophy of Design which forms part of my capstone project.
If you are new to Futures Thinking, check out the 1 minute future series of animations that explain some core concepts and terms. This is a series still in development and I will be adding more over the coming months.
Future Human by Design will continue to grow and explore these fascinating intersections of disciplines and methods of thinking.
