Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review


The chapter addresses design and sustainable transition by examining a case of an emergent design of an urban mobility system based on an electric car sharing system. It outlines a conceptual and analytic framework for a reflexive design practice for sustainability, including a perspective of structural changes and design as metadesign. It addresses designing for sustainability as interventions in socio-technical systems and social practices of users and communities, and call for reflexive design practices challenging dominant regimes and the shaping of alternative design spaces. Designers must obtain an ability to contribute to sustainable transition processes, and the chapter addresses design processes aimed at such sustianable transitions enacted in complex social settings and with different actors and agendas
