CODE cooling April 29th from 15:00

After 8 years with CODE (Codesign Research Center) and 15 years at KADK, Eva Brandt and Thomas Binder are moving to The Design School Kolding. From May 1st Eva will be professor in social design, and Thomas will be professor in sustainability and design contributing to the MA-programs; Design for People, and Design for Planet.

With Sissel Olander and Mette Agger Eriksen at KADK, codesign is still well represented at the KADK campus, but together we have decided that it is time to close CODE and to move on in new directions.

We therefore invite friends, colleagues and former students to join us on Monday, April 29, from 15:00 to share a drink and to have a last gathering around the CODE round table.

Come as you are to KADK, building 90, room 90.3.15 and please also spread the word to others in our network.

About Eva Brandt

Eva Brandt is Professor in Social Design at Design School Kolding since May 2019. Before she was professor (MSO) at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation, and holds a Ph.D from 2001. Eva is scientific leader of the Lab for Social Design. Previously she was co-leading the Center for Research in Codesign (CODE). Since September 2014 she has been part of the main faculty for a two year international MA-program in codesign. The main part of her research is about how designers can stage open design processes (design labs) with many participants who both can inquire into existing practices and explore possible futures in common. She also contributes to theorizing about experimental design research driven by programs and experiments. She has been contributing to several books such as Design Spaces (IT Press, 2005), Rehearsing the Future (The Danish Design School Press, 2010), XLAB (The Danish Design School Press, 2011), Facilitating Change – Using Interactive Methods in Organizations, Communities and Networks (Polyteknisk Forlag, 2011), and Routledge International Handbook of Participatory Design (Routledge, 2013). Eva has been chairing the Nordic Design Research Conference in 2013.
