Designerly Ways of Knowing: A Working Inventory of Things a Designer Should Know with Danah Abdulla and Peter Hall
To mark the launch of Designerly ways of knowing: a working inventory of things a designer should know, Danah Abdulla will discuss her new book with academic and author Peter Hall. Danah Abdulla’s first book pays tribute to the late architect, activist and critic Michael Sorkin, whose original list Two Hundred and Fifty Things an Architect Should Know inspired this updated version targeted at designers. Described as a guidebook slash notebook of things designers should think about in order for them to know, The iterative list is not meant to be a definitive how-to guide but to spark conversations, prompt critical thinking and to help designers reconfigure their discipline.
Danah will be in conversation with Peter Hall, co-author alongside Patricio Dávila of the forthcoming Critical Visualization: Rethinking the Representation of Data (Bloomsbury).
This event is organised by the Camden Art Centre and supported by Onomatopee.
