Issue 31 / Shaping our world: Change by design
The sensory stimulation offered by colour, texture and structure shape how we interpret the world and how we interact with it. In response to real-world challenges, our researchers are looking at ways in which we can improve that interaction. They are taking creative ideas and employing a wide range of design strategies to catalyze these ideas into tangible solutions. From virtual reality and machine learning to fashion, architecture, economics, urban planning and photography, our scholars are boldly demonstrating design and creativity's intrinsic connection to sustainability, society and inclusive communities.
The stories featured in Innovation are just a few examples of the vital ways that design and creativity can create impact in the world around us, as well as stimulate novel collaborations across different disciplines.
