What is dutchDesign?

DutchDesign is an undergraduate field school and research program offered by the School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT) at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. This website is the legacy project of the bi-annual research results conducted in the area of design and innovation in the Netherlands, under the directorship of Russell Taylor, Senior Lecturer in Design, SIAT. DutchDesign is part of a larger research project that has been studying the same phenomena in Italy with the ItaliaDesign Field School program since 2004. The most significant contribution to the field are the interviews conducted in the Netherlands with leading designers, thinkers, architects and design manufacturers. Each year, the new team builds on the previous year’s research. DutchDesign is an open source network that values above all knowledge-share on a global scale.
