Masters in Lighting Design. Thinking Shapes the World We now use the term “design” about thinking that reaches far beyond the traditional area of design, as design revolves first and foremost around shaping the space inside the human mind and spotting new possibilities. Design is research, transformative force and political action. Nothing is irrelevant to it, be it education, politics, business or society as a whole. The idea of designing things to sell in shops is now rather outdated, as the stated aims of design have become to lead thinking, to change attitudes and to have a positive influence on how people live. The demand is made of contemporary designers that they are aware of their responsibility and power in a world that has reached the utmost limits of materialism. Designers are important advocates of sustainability and responsible conduct, in built areas or in nature. They should be able to make out patterns as they appear in society, rearrange these and utilise for good work. Main focus A systematic understanding of the relationship between design and the environment. Students should know about the conceptual premises of design and be able to take a responsible stance towards the environment and society. Deeper knowledge and increased skill to engage with complex design projects. The gaze is directed towards urgent contemporary issues. A change for good in society by using the methodology of design to increase the quality of life and efficiency - and to create value. Encouraging students to constantly seek new... [-]
